At 70 miles long the Chilkat Range extends south along the Chilkat Inlet, Lynn Canal, and on to Icy Strait. The range obtained its name in 1879 by the USGS, to represent the local Tlingit tribe.

Known for being a heli-skiing dream the Chilkat Range is the impressive back drop to the town of Haines. These mountains have made their way into many films, magazines, and blogs.
