One hundred years ago, thousands of hardy men and women struggled over this Pass and down the Yukon River to the Klondike Goldfields. The Northwest Mounted Police required that all people had to carry their grubstake, one year's provisions, with them. For some, this meant more than 30 trips over the Chilkoot Pass carrying their heavy backpacks. Driven by the hopes of unbelievable riches, they overcame great obstacles just to find out that they were too late! On this adventure, we'll retrace the Stampeders route one-way over the Chilkoot Pass. Reminders of their passing lie everywhere. We will carry just a light load compared to the stampeders and we do have a different goal: our treasure lies in the adventure itself!
