You can either walk from town or drive to the airport and park in the reserved spots for hikers. For the most part the trail is easy, there are one or two areas that you have to go uphill and around some rocks. The scenery from Yakutania Point is awesome. You can continue on to Smuggler's Cove for another view... More

This is an easy hike from the south end of the airport and has some great views IF the weather allows you to see the fjord, mountains, and glacier. When we were there, it was MUCH windier than in town or on the trail and the chill factor made it unbearable to stand out on the rocks, even in August.... More

This was an easy walk. The trail is wide and well maintained up to the point where you can walk out to the actual rocky point. The view was lovely, although the mosquitoes were a bit annoying.

An easy and fairly short walk from the town, past the airport runway to the Point. Probably only 30 mins each way. A fairly flat track and easy to follow. The view from the point is lovely, and you can sit on the rocks and admire it. You can keep on going a few hundred metres further to Smugglers Cove... More

Yakutania Point gives a neat view of the western end of Skagway and the shoreline both directions from the town. You walk north on 1st Ave, past the western end of the airport runway, cross the Skagway River bridge, and see the signs showing the trail west to Yakutania Point. Most hikers will do the trail in ten minutes or... More

This trail was my favorite in Skagway. It is also nearly the simplest. It is a short walk from the town and gives you a wonderful view of the ocean and mountains. Well worth it!

This made for a great leg-stretcher after morning on the train ride, followed by lunch on the ship. The entire hike is about 2.5 miles, with little elevation gain (a little over 110 feet) My husband Jerry and I thoroughly enjoyed the hike first to Smuggler's Cove, and then to l Yakutania Point. We enjoyed the hike for two reasons:... More

Nice short walk out of town to the point. Great vistas of nearby mountains and glaciers. Saw and heard whales from the point.
