TUESDAYS AT 9PM
Between 1896 and 1899, more than 100,000 brave souls set out on a perilous journey into the frozen North on the legendary Klondike Gold Rush trail. Most never made it to the end.
Killed or scared off by bears, treacherous terrain, raging torrents and temperatures below -40 degrees, only one in three completed the journey.
Now Parker Schnabel of Discovery Gold Rush fame, will attempt to make this same journey and document it in Gold Rush: Parker's Trail on the Discovery Channel.
But he won’t do this alone. Joining Parker on his journey will be his foreman Rick Ness, wilderness guide Karla Ann, who once worked with Parker as a rock truck driver; and cameramen James Levelle, who has known Parker for years.
At the age of 22, Parker has already struck it rich in the Klondike by mining over $13 million dollars’ worth of gold. But despite his financial success, he’s always wondered – is he tough as the original gold mining stampeders?
