From Whitehorse to Dawson, the Dawson Overland Trail is a 112km multi-use trail. The trail starts at Takhini Crossing near Whitehorse and runs northwest to Braeburn Lodge near Dawson. The trail follows an old stagecoach route. This multi-use route is shared with horseback riding, mountain biking, ATV riding, snowmobiling and nordic skiing.
Only one-third of the 8,500 sq. mile Kluane National Park Reserve is open to hikers -- the other portion is glacier! All trails are multi-use, however, few people make use of the region.
The Chilcoot Trail is a famous bear and misquito infested route from Dyea (near Skagway) to Lake Bennet (Yukon). It is a 33 mile one-way trek over Chilkoot Pass through stunning wilderness. The route is limited via permits to 50 hikers a day.
