The Chilkoot Route, or Chilkoot Trail, is a mountain route of about fifty kilometers, which begins in the town of Skagway, in Alaska, and ends at the Bennett train station, in Canada, crossing the Coastal Mountains through the Chilkoot. Pass. Follow the journey made by gold prospectors who entered the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century.

In 2023, the American side remains closed due to damage caused by flooding, so you can only visit the Canadian side.

From Bennet to Whitehorse by Seaplane

Since my GPS was left on, this nonsense about the plane trip was recorded, so here it goes. For what it may serve, which will be very little.
The trip was quite annoying. The plane is very narrow, cramped, and very hot. It didn't give me anything. I would have preferred to return by train, but this is what it is.
Looking on the bright side, it is true that seeing the landscape from the air is amazing. The river was especially beautiful. You could see all the meanders, which from this perspective is wonderful.
For the rest, it must be recognized that it is the best way to return from Bennett. The other option is to take the train again, who knows when it passes, to return to Carcross. And there, reach Whitehorse by road. That's another long and uncomfortable trip, so in the end the seaplane thing isn't so bad.

Rest of stages:

Approach to Bennett by train from Carcross.

Stage 1. From Bennett Train Station to Bare Loon Camp. 7 km.

Stage 2. From Bare Loon Camp to Happy Camp. 13 km.

Stage 3. From Happy Camp to Chilkoot Pass and back to Happy Camp. 12.5 km.

Stage 4. From Happy Camp to Lindeman City. 10 km.

Stage 5. From Lindeman City to Bennett Train Station. 11 km.
