2022 Auction: Moose Pass


The community of Moose Pass is located 29 miles north of Seward on the Kenai Peninsula and approximately 100 miles south of Anchorage. It is on the southwest shore of Upper Trail Lake, off the Seward Highway. The area is a popular recreation area, particularly during the summer, due to its proximity to the Trail Lakes, Trail River, and Seward area on Resurrection Bay. It is noted for its natural beauty and many hiking trails (within the adjoining Chugach National Forest), fishing, and camping. Community services include a US Post Office, school operated by the Kenai Peninsula Borough for grades K-8, convenience grocery store, library, restaurant, and inns.

MHT 9200814 is located on the east side of the Seward Highway.

The parcel does not have direct access with the Seward Highway and is located on the east side of the Alaska Railroad ROW. The parcel can be access by foot, boat or floatplane.

It is recommended to prospective bidders to contact the Alaska Railroad to determine feasibility for access across the railroad that runs adjacent to the western boarder of MHT 9200814.

Municipal Authority

The parcels are located within the Kenai Peninsula Borough and are subject to real property taxation.


Electrical service is provided in the community by Chugach Electric Association. In the survey, between Mile 27.6 and 28.5, the overhead electric distribution line generally parallels the Seward Highway about 350 to 600 feet west of the highway. Potential purchasers should contact Chugach Electric Association for costs and more information on electrical power to the parcels.

There is no central public water and sewer in the area. Water is typically handled by a private well and sewer is typically handled by a private septic system which would have to conform to Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation requirements.


The subject is located in Moose Pass, Alaska with frontage on Upper Trail Lake and the Alaska Railroad. It is very irregular in shape with a high amount of waterfrontage. Given the neighborhood characteristics, the most probable use is rural residential or recreation.

Development would be difficult due to the lack of access from the Seward Highway; however, similar waterfront parcels without road access are routinely developed in Alaska. The lot appears to have more than one suitable building site.
