Requires you to take a water taxi from Homer, AK unless you have access to a boat (too far to kayak) but it was worth it. Extremely nice view of the glacier and floating glacial ice in the lake itself. The hike itself is very pretty and there is a good trail system if you wish to continue further. There is also a small community with a coffee shop and a restaurant, however these were closed for the season when I visited (early Sept.)

Not easy hiking but oh so gorgeous! Sea otters galore, dolphins, loons, bald eagles, squirrels, bears and 82 bear poops in the middle of the trail. Luckily no close encounters though. Overlook Cabin on Halibut Cove Lagoon is a little slice of heaven but don’t forget you may have to filter water...

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.
