About Takshanuk Mountain Trail by 4x4
The Takshanuk Mountain Trail puts you up close and personal with raw Alaskan wilderness. If you're looking for an activity that is a little more hands-on, hop into a Kawasaki Mule utility vehicle for a tour that climbs 1,500 feet through lush Alaskan forest. With a guide leading the way, you'll pass over meandering mountain streams and cruise past back country waterfalls, stopping along the way to enjoy crisp mountain air and snap lots of photos. You'll certainly want your camera handy when you reach the top of the trail because a magnificent overlook area provides a stunning view of Chilkoot Lake and the Upper Lynn Canal, North America's longest and deepest fjord. To cap off the experience you'll be treated to fresh baked cookies and our famous beer-battered halibut and roasted chicken meal at our exclusive mountain lodge.

This was a wonderful, exciting trail ride to the top of a mountain with a beautiful view. 4x4 was fun to drive, comfortable. Tour staff was nice, knowledgeable and very pleasant. There was a beautiful cabin half way up the mountain with snacks (delicious cookies)for all and bathroom if needed. The top of the mountain was beautiful with lots of photo ops. On the way back down another stop at the cabin with a fantastic lunch. The staff was outstanding.

My husband, son, daughter in love and myself were blessed to be on the NCL Bliss for my 63rd birthday 9/1/19. We chose to do the Takshanuk Mountain Trail 4x4 AGAIN. This is the 4th time my husband and I have done this. The ferry ride to Haines is always a beautiful ride. The 4X4's are such fun. We were lucky to have Sabrina as one of our amazing guides again this year. Missed Angie but I did see her to grab a hug. This excursion is by far the best thing to do when ported in Skagway. The Halibut lunch was to die for...YUMMY!!! We plan to go again in 2021. Absolutely love this excursion!! Angie and Sabrina have been adopted as my Alaska sisters from other misters.....thanks so much.

My wife and two other couples took this attraction. Even though the weather was pretty bad we were able to complete the trip and was treated very professionally by the people who operate this attraction. Overall this was a good choice.

We had a great time on this tour. I and my wife had our own 4x4, and my sister and her husband had theirs. My sister required special assistance (she is an amputee) and the guide was more than accommodating. We drove up to the lodge and had some warm cookies and coffee, then drove some more up to a scenic outlook. After that, we drove further up to a very beautiful overlook. This was private land, but we'll maintained. The overlook was a stunning view of the surrounding area, mountains, and a large meadow with watermelon berries that we were able to pick and try. Afterwards, we drove back down to the lodge and had a lunch of potatoes, salad, and halibut nuggets. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our guide was also delightful. The lead was knowledgeable and helpful, took pictures of us with the overlook behind. The tail guide was humorous and often joked about the size of the town. Overall a great time, and highly recommended for the views.
