Visitors to the Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea should include a trip across the Bay to the Kachemak State Park, which offers amazing wilderness scenery that can be experienced for a few hours or a week... There's a big network of maintained trails, campsites, and even cozy cabins or yurts for rent too (early reservations for these popular facilities are necessary). Hiking opportunities range from relatively easy -- such as the Saddle Trail to Grewingk Glacier Lake -- to challenging (e.g. Grace Ridge). Kayakers and boaters enjoy wildlife viewing, plus great fishing (in season)... Humpy Creek offers stream angling for pink salmon and Dolly Varden char (note: be aware of bears here). August is a good time to gather wild berries too... Water transport and kayak rentals can be arranged from a number of licensed operators, including Mako's Water Taxi. The Kachemak State Park is truly a marvelous & accessible wilderness... Enjoy this charming feature of the Homer area :))
