Skagway to Laughton Round Trip

Skagway to Laughton Round Trip

An unforgettable experience!

This day hike begins with a 14-mile train ride aboard the scenic White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railway. You will detrain and begin a 5 to 8 mile self-guided hike through old growth forest, along a tumbling river and up the moraine for a glacier ascent. Upon your return to the tracks you will again board the train and return to Skagway. We recommend this hike only for those who are in at least fair physical condition. This is a wilderness hike over uneven and sometimes difficult terrain. Hikers should wear a lightweight, long sleeve shirt or a sweater and temperatures can range between 55 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightweight hiking boots or shoes with some ankle support are recommended. A U.S. Forest Service cabin is located approximately 1.5 miles from the railroad tracks and is available for hikers wishing to overnight.

Reservations for the cabin are required and must be made directly through the U.S. Forest Service.
