Chilkat Pass

A lonely scenic drive to Chilkat Pass

Chilkat Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.061m (3,480ft) above the sea level, located in Stikine Region, in the province of British Columbia, Canada, near the border of Alaska, United States.

The road to the summit is a good, 2-lane paved highway running through the coastal mountains. It’s called Haines Highway. The pass is named for the Chilkat subgroup of the Tlingit people.

There’s a small parking lot at the summit. Although the highway is maintained year-round if you plan on traveling the route between September 15 and June 1, be sure to check weather conditions before you head out.
