Description: The "stepstone" for all potential prospectors during the 1898 Klondyke Gold Rush. People arrived by ship in Skagway, AK, than had to schlepp around 100s of kg of supplies up the valley and up the pass. On top of the pass (the border between Alaska and B.C.) there was a weigh scale where Canadian official checked if goldrushers had enough supplies to last one winter in the Yukon. They went on to the lakes further north, build rafts and floated down the Yukon (which start at those lakes) all the way to Dawson City, Yukon. It is a nice treck today.
