The Gold Rush Cemetery is a fascinating place, allowing a glimpse into the past of the area’s people. The dates listed on the stones date back to 1897, and one of the most famous is that of Jefferson “Soapy” Smith, a notorious con artist and Old West gangster, known for opening businesses where he quietly robbed his customers and for manipulating political campaigns. Visitors will also find the graves of many individuals involved in the Gold Rush, while an informative entrance display provides even more insight into the cemetery and its inhabitants.

If you enjoy hiking, continue past Gold Rush Cemetery to Lower Reid Falls, a popular trekking route that’s about two miles (3.2 km) each way. The actual falls are gorgeous, a gushing narrow cascade gliding over rock and mountainside. To better understand the trails—especially if you want to explore more of the area—head to the Skagway Visitor Information Center before visiting the cemetery and pick up a trail map.

Nature Tour to Dyea

Leave the crowds of Skagway behind and join a small group tour (14 maximum) to nearby Dyea. In 1898, Dyea boasted over 8,000 residents and had a busy Main Street crowded with gold-crazed miners. What little of the town remaining today has been taken over by nature. This area is protected as part of the Klondike National Historical Park. Start with a scenic, nine-mile drive along the rocky seacoast. Every month brings something different to Dyea. Wildflowers, migrating salmon, harbor seals, bald eagles and even the occasional brown bear each peak at different times. Your naturalist guide knows the area well and knows the best places to get out of the vehicle to take it all in. The tour highlight is a half-mile walk along a flat trail lined with fragrant spruce trees and wildflowers that once was Dyea’s Main Street. You’ll return to your ship with more than photos. You’ll have gained an appreciation of the impermanence of man and the profound and lasting power of Alaska nature.
