This is one of 14 Wikiloc Trails in a series that recounts an 855 kilometer (531 statute mile, 461 nautical mile) journey by kayak from Bennett, British Columbia to Dawson City, Yukon Territories from June 30 to July 13, 2018.

A team of four Canadian kayakers from British Columbia completed this paddle in celebration of and homage to the roughly 100,000 gold prospectors who sought their fortune by attempting this route during the Yukon Gold Rush of 1897 to 1899. Fewer than a third actually completed the route, which began with a 53 kilometer hike and climb over Chilkoot Pass from the Southeastern Alaska panhandle coast at Dyea to a high mountain lake at Bennett, British Columbia. One member of the kayak expedition had completed this four-day hike and climb several years earlier with his two sons. This journey by boat would complement and complete that first stage in the re-enactment of this historic journey: traveling from the Pacific Ocean to the Yukon Gold Fields.

The second day of paddling was a long day on lakes without a current. A light morning tailwind (5-10 knots) gave way to strong headwinds (10-15 knots) by later afternoon and into the evening. We paddled half the length of Bennett Lake, stopped (again) in Carcross for a stretch, and then paddled Tagish Lake through Tagish and onto Marsh Lake. Our total distance on this day was 62 kilometers/39 statute miles/34 nautical miles). It was a LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG day.

Bennett Lake Campsite

A nice beach on the north side of a small island was our first night out. A simple table was on the site as a cooking surface and lots of tent space on flat ground was available.
