Moose Pass

Located on the shores of Upper Trail Lake, the town is surrounded by the Chugach National Forest and is also home to the start of the Iditarod trail, which was blazed through here in 1910. Since it seems to be just a dot on the road, though, it would be easy to miss - but it makes a great home base for visiting Seward or the Russian River fishing area.
