Laughton Glacier is located just north of Skagway, flowing off the Sawtooth Range into the watershed of the Skagway River. The experience of hiking to the glacier is enjoyable not only because of the beautiful scenery along the trail but also because the trailhead can only be accessed by a train that travels through some breathtaking landscape between Skagway and the Laughton Glacier Flag Stop. The hike is fairly easy up to the cabin but continuing all the way to the glacier is slightly more challenging. Contact the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad for a current schedule and fares for the train ride. The trail is heavily used for guided hikes so expect to see others along the way.
