Rohn Cabin | Roadhouse Safety Cabin on the Iditarod Trail

Rohn Cabin at the National Register of Historic Places

Rohn Cabin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as one of the most beautiful checkpoints along the Iditarod Trail. Gold rushers, mail carriers, trappers, bush pilots, and Iditarod Racers have utilized the cabin and emergency airstrip near "Rainy Pass". While the original cabin no longer exists, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the standing building in the 1930s. Many desperate pilots have visited the historic site despite the fact that its use dropped dramatically with the construction of the Alaska Railroad. It has also been a stop on the Iditarod dog sled race since the 1970s. There is no doubt that this is an incredibly scenic spot, with great mountain valleys joining beneath even greater peaks, but it also speaks volumes to mushers about the tough trail ahead. Just 20 miles away, a forest fire has left downed trees, making sledding through the Farewell Burn bumpy.


The Rohn Cabin lies near the confluence of the Kuskowim River's South Fork and the Tatina River. The cabin's location has been an important stopover for travelers for over a century.
