This is a charming mountain village located on the shores of scenic Upper Trail Lake. Moose Pass began as a construction camp on the Alaska Railroad in 1912. Local resident Ed Estes attributed the name Moose Pass to a 1904 observation by Nate White of the first moose recorded in this area. Another version holds that “in 1903, a mail carrier driving a team of dogs had considerable trouble gaining the right-of-way from a giant moose.” A post office was established in 1928 and first postmistress Leora (Estes) Roycroft officially named the town Moose Pass.
