Mechanical, dog-tracked, human-powered… The roadhouse has been involved in the Iditarod Trail races for decades and this year won’t change it!

2/2021: Iron Dog checkpoint

The roadhouse serves as a checkpoint for the Iron Dog snowmobile race. McGrath is a famous layover, and an ideal place to follow the event and support your favorite racers! Book your stay here.
