Dalton's Post

Vehicles and equipment are available in Haines to help with your planning. But the actual starting point for the expedition is at Dalton's Post, a collection of ruined cabins in the Yukon, from the time of the late 1800 gold rush days, and when this was one of two routes to the Klondike gold fields from Alaska's coast. The 4-mile road down to Dalton Post turns off Haines Road (Hwy 3) to the west; look for this turn just north of the Haines Road Bridge across the Takhanne River. The put in is just upstream of the Klukshu River confluence with the Tatshenshini. You can get there by flying to Juneau and then by air or ferry boat to Haines, Alaska, where you then take a vehicle into Canada to the put in site. Or you can start in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and, again, drive to the put in at Dalton's Post. You will have to coordinate vehicle shuttles and drivers.
