The Chilkoot Trail In Alaska Starts In An Abandoned Village

There are many wondrous hikes to do here in Alaska, but the Chilkoot Trail is truly one in a million. Starting off in the ghost town of Dyea, this hike follows in the footsteps of the thousands of gold rushers that came looking for gold. With stunning views, and studded with historical artifacts, this trail should be on your lifetime bucket list.
