Moose Pass Alaska
The charming community of Moose Pass, Alaska sits right on the Seward Highway on the way to Seward. Just 100 miles from Anchorage, it offers a surprisingly wide array of enjoyable activities and accommodations.
Moose Pass began as a small log cabin and roadhouse, built in the early 1900's by Oscar Christensen and Mickey Natt, who came to the area to seek their fortunes. The original Iditarod trail was built through the area in 1910, and by the late 1920's there was a post office and a school. Moose Pass today has just over 200 year round residents.
Activities in Moose Pass include hunting, fishing, flightseeing and hiking some of the many trails scattered throughout the area. There are lodges with dining available, bed and breakfasts, grocery stores and camping. Each June the residents put on a Summer Solstice celebration, coming together for food, games and music, with the proceeds going towards community endeavors. Moose Pass is also a great home base for visitors who wish to venture into the coastal town of Seward, where they can check out the Seward Sealife Center or hike around Exit Glacier or nearby Cooper Landing and Summit Lake for fishing and recreation.
