I had the pleasure of stunningly beautiful day - clear glassy water and rich array of wildlife everywhere. It was near perfect.

I took the Mako water taxi over to the Glacier Spit stop from Homer and took the easy hike up to the Grewingk glacier lake. Stunning views. This was an incredibly beautiful spot, and a highlight of my trip to Alaska. I even saw a black bear on the way back to the Saddle pickup spot! The trail was well maintained and marked. There was an outhouse at the glacier spit drop off and another at the glacier lake. I had full LTE service from at&t for most of the hike (closest to the beginning and ends of the hike but not at the lake at all). Very remote and wilderness-y but totally manageable and highly recommended.

This park has great maintained trails. Lots of wildlife. Love the packet glaciers. Breathtaking views. Well worth the hike. Bring your water. A lunch so you can continue on.

We took a water taxi over to the Saddle trail, hiked to the top and back down the other side toward the glacier, but were afraid of missing our taxi back, so didn't make it to the glacier. We did see a serene view of the bay, lots of bear poop, no bears (yay), and few other visitors. The trails were well kept, though a little soggy on the interior after the rain. Very steep, so plan to wear hiking boots, and if it's rained, make sure they're water proof.

So glad we made time for this hike! Pro-tip, stop at La Baleine to get their box lunch to eat there! Great portions!
