Founded in 1909, Moose Pass was known for mining, logging and as an important transfer site for those heading north during the early settlement of Alaska.
The early Iditarod supply trail went through Moose Pass in 1911, and a developed trail system now affords hikers great backcountry adventures in the area.
The U.S. Forest Service maintains the trails in the area that wind through the Chugach National Forest. Accessible for small hikes or grand adventures, the scenery around Moose Pass makes any trek on these trails worthwhile.
In respect for Alaska law, and for the families that call Moose Pass home, remember to obey the posted speed limits as you travel through the area.
