Located on an oxbow of the Kuskowkim River at the confluence of the Takotna River, McGrath is both a city and tribal village. Despite the community's small population, McGrath is an important economic hub for the area, boasting world-class hunting and is a checkpoint for the Iron Dog snowmobile race and the Iditarod sled-dog race.
