    Welcome to Skagway Alaska

    The town of Skagway was created overnite with the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. The town is located at the start of the great White Pass Trail which led over the mountains to the gold fields.

    The port of Skagway is a popular stop for cruise ships, and the tourist trade is a big part of the business of Skagway. The White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad, part of the area's mining past, is now in operation purely for the tourist trade and runs throughout the summer months. Skagway is also part of the setting for Jack London's book The Call of the Wild.

    Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park
    P.O. Box 517, Skagway, Alaska 99840;
    907-983-2921; NPS Park Website;

    Commemorating the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s. The gold rush was in the Yukon Territory, and this park comprises staging areas for the trek there, and routes leading in its direction. The park consists of four units: three in Skagway Borough, Alaska and a fourth in the Pioneer Square National Historic District in Seattle, Washington.

    Klondike Gold Rush NHP and Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site, in British Columbia, form Klondike Gold Rush International Historical Park. During the height of the Klondike Gold Rush, Finnegan's Camp on the Chilkoot Trail was a tent city. There were saloons, restaurants and hotels all housed in tents.

    The Skagway unit protects much of downtown Skagway including 15 restored historic buildings. The park also preserves portions of the White Pass Trail and the Chilkoot Trail, which leaves from the historic townsite of Dyea, Alaska and runs to Bennett Lake, from which prospectors could raft to Dawson City, Yukon. Portions of Dyea are also part of the historical park. The visitor center in Skagway has information regarding current traveling conditions along the Chilkoot Trail. A fee is required to hike the 33-mile trail.

    One of the last unspoiled and largest temperate rain forests of the world, the Tongass Rain Forest hugs the North American Coastline from Kodiak Island in Alaska and stretches as far south as Northern California. It is home to the densest biomass on Planet Earth.
