The second day you can ride out of town on the Haines Road through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve to the distance of your choice. We then pick you up in the van for the ride back to town.
On the morning of the third day you take the thirty-five minute fast ferry to Skagway. After settling in at a local B&B you can take in the sights of the historic gold rush town. You can take the mid-day departure of the White Pass and Yukon Railroad to Fraser Station in Canada then bike back to Skagway, descending the 3292' pass in fifteen miles.
