WELCOME to Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park

Gold! Headlines read in 1897, starting the rush. Thousands, hoping to ease the woes of economic depression, sold farms, dropped businesses and boarded ships to follow their dreams north. 

They braved icy passes to reach the interior of Canada, only to find the gold claims staked by prospectors who preceded them. A few struck gold; many more returned home penniless, yet richer for the adventure.

Chilkoot Trail

The Chilkoot Trail, originally established by the Tlingit people as a trade route into the interior, became a major route during the gold rush. Today adventure seekers can hike the Chilkoot Trail following those footsteps over the challenging Golden Stairs.
Skagway Historic District

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park preserves some of the original historic structures in the town of Skagway, Alaska. Visit the historic district of Skagway to learn

Ranger-Led Activities

Ranger-led activities are a good way to learn about the park and enjoy the scenery at the same time. We have many options to choose from.

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.
