Chilkoot Trail

In Episode 4, Roger (aka The Camel) speaks about The Chilkoot Trail which is a 33 mile route that starts in Dyea, Alaska (near Skagway) and ends at Lake Bennett, British Columbia.

The Chilkoot Trail is a walk back in time. It follows the trail that the stampeders used to reach the Yukon River and float their provisions to the gold fields of the Klondike over a hundred years ago. Many artifacts from the 1890’s still litter the trail and there is great diversity along the way including swamps, deserts, snowy mountain passes, lush canyons, and alpine lakes.

In this podcast, The Camel talks about getting to the trail head, social experiences on the trail, crossing the Chilkoot Pass, scenery along the route, and returning to Skagway via a segregated caboose on a historic rail line that is often voted as one of the most scenic in the world.
