The Dalton Trail is a trail that runs between , west of Haines, Alaska in the United States, and Fort Selkirk, in the Yukon Territory of Canada, using the Chilkat Pass. It is 396 km (246 mi) long. Originally, the Chilkat group of Tlingit controlled the trail, which they used for trade with the Athabascan people of the interior. They called the trail "grease trail" after the eulachon oil (extracted from the tiny candlefish) that was the most important item of trade on the Chilkoot side. Each Tlingit chief had an exclusive Athabascan trading partner. Tlingits took eulachon oil and returned with furs, hides and copper nuggets gathered by the Athabascans. Trading parties often lasted a month or more and often consisted of as many as 100 men, each of whom would carry a 45 kg (100 pound) load.

  • Der Dalton Trail war ein Handelspfad in Kanada, der zwischen einem Stamm der Tlingit an der Küste und einem Stamm der Athabaska im Binnenland entstand und ab etwa 1892 von weißen Siedlern ausgebaut wurde. Er verband die Küste westlich von Haines bei Pyramid Harbor mit dem Handelsposten Fort Selkirk im Yukon-Territorium und wurde während der Zeit des Goldrausches in Alaska von Goldsuchern genutzt und damit bekannt gemacht wurde. Heute ist der Trail zum Teil als Wanderroute nutzbar; weitere Teile, besonders im Bereich des Chilikat Pass, werden vom Haines Highway genutzt.
