Crossing the Mountains, about 26 miles from the Dyea trail head the stampeder would arrive at the tent city of Lindeman City. Here many would build boats and sail down the rapids, through the lake system to the Yukon River.

Many of the stampeders would continue with their ton of goods over land to Lake Bennett, about 33 miles from the Dyea trail head. This was considered the end of the Chilkoot Trail. Here they would build boats and sail down the Yukon River to Dawson City.
(White Horse Rapids)
The most dangerous area on the trip down the Yukon River was the White Horse Rapids. Many stampeders lost everything as their boats smashed on the rocks.
