Hike & Float Skagway

On this adventure you'll retrace the steps of the Gold Rush stampeders on the infamous Chilkoot Trail, hiking through a moss-covered northern temperate rainforest for 2 miles. The hike is 1.5 to 2 hours and is moderately difficult over uneven and hilly terrain (elevation gain of 300 feet) for the first mile, then mostly flat ground for the remainder.

After the one way hike, suit up in life jackets and rubber boots and enjoy your float in the tranquil Taiya River. Keep your eyes open and camera ready to spot Bald Eagles and other potential wildlife. You will be on the river for approximately 40 minutes.
