Considered to be the longest outdoor museum in the world, this 33 mile long trail - beginning in Dyea about 10 miles past Skagway, is shared by America and Canada and is located in the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. Besides being an important trade and travel trail for First Nation peoples it also became very significant during the Gold Rush. The trail is a significant blending of cultural, historical, ecological, recreational, and educational opportunities. From the website listed here click on the Hiker Preparation Guide at the bottom of the page for a complete synopsis of the trail, supplies and equipment needed, designated camping sites, permits that are required, safety tips, border crossing information, trail conditions, and much more. Dogs are allowed on the trail (albeit not encouraged); they must be kept leashed at all times due to wildlife and parts of the trail can be very challenging for a dog. Although dogs are not allowed for normal tours or transport, the White Pass and Yukon Railroad does provide a return service for hikers who are hiking with their pet. Hikers coming to the Bennett station after hiking the Chilkoot Trail in-route to Skagway can also get transport for their dog if they have made reservations in advance. Contact-- Bennett Chilkoot Trail Hiker Service Train @ http://www.wpyr.com/chilkoottrail.html. There is a $25 hiker service fee for transport with a dog on the train. Dogs must be well mannered, leashed and under their owner's control at all times.
