Homer Grewingk Glacier Hike
This 5 hour tour includes a beautiful water taxi ride across Kachemak Bay to Glacier Spit in Kachemak Bay State Park where you will join your guide for a moderate level 4.5 mile hike to Grewingk Glacier Lake. Please note this hike covers trails that have rocky and uneven ground in some places. After traveling across Kachemak Bay you will meet your guide and begin your walk to Grewingk Glacier. Your guide will identify and allow you to taste edible vegetation along the way, point out the stages of reforestation along the glacial moraine and provide you with a wealth of information you would not obtain walking this trail on your own. The trail crosses flat terrain, through stands of cottonwoods and spruce and across the dry outwash plain of the Grewingk Glacier. It ends at the broad, open beaches of Grewingk Glacier Lake. This trail offers superb views of the glacier and its surrounding peaks. Icebergs floating in the lake present opportunities for great photos.
The tour includes round trip water taxi, guide and state park fee. There is no food or beverage included on the trip. Be sure to bring binoculars, a camera, and plenty of film. A walking stick is also a good idea.
What to Wear
Wear warm layered clothes and comfortable walking shoes suitable for moderate, backcountry hiking. In a backpack, so that your hands are free, bring light rain gear, camera, binoculars and your drinks and snacks for the day. A walking stick is also a good idea.
