The most direct way was by boat to the Lynn Canal in southeastern Alaska, over White or Chilkoot Pass into Canada, and down the Yukon River.

The gold-bearing gravel found between the Yukon and Klondike Rivers brought as much as $22 million in , but it fell to $ million by when most of the prospectors had left for Alaska, returned to Seattle, or set out to other regions.
