In the early 1900s, the trail over Crow Pass was part of the Iditarod winter sled trail through the mountains between Turnagain Arm and Knik Arm, en route from Seward to Knik, and thence to Interior goldfields. The hike to Crow Pass offers a pleasant day trip into a beautiful mountain wilderness with gold mine relics, glaciers, alpine lakes, and wildflowers. The route follows a dogsled route once traveled by mail carriers, explorers, and prospectors. Experienced hikers can take a 2- or 3-day point-to-point trip on the old Iditarod Trail through Chugach State Park to the Eagle River Nature Center.
