Iditarod Trail

Distance

1049 miles

Difficulty

Moderate

This trail was once used as access to gold mining territory. In 1925 a diptheria epidemic threatened Nome and the route was covered in 127 hours to deliver serum to those who were ill. It is now raced every year on dog sled to commemorate that and is the longest sled dog race in the world. The trail is easy in pieces and difficult in its entirety.
