An August 2004 trip
to Skagway by LetsGoThere
Quote: The Chilkoot Trail is beatiful, challenging, and rich with history. Hikers who are looking to push themselves, try turning this 5-day hike into a day trip. My sister is a Skagway local, and we did the daytrip version last year; it's way tougher than any marathon I've run.

The first camping area after summit is Happy Camp, and most people stop here for the best night’s sleep of their lives. The last 13 miles you descend below the tree line and are rewarded with spectacular views of glaciers, rivers, and wildlife. Once you reach Bennett, you catch a steam train back to Skagway, which is an experience in itself.
