Grewingk Glacier Professional Review and Guide
"Kachemak Bay State Park offers hikes for everyone—from families with infants to experienced backpackers—and even the easiest comes complete with a glacier lake, icebergs, towering peaks, and a spectacular coast. This book covers some of the most accessible trails. One leads to a large, iceberg-dotted lake at the foot of Grewingk Glacier; one to a high ridge overlooking the lake, the ice, and the ocean; and one to Grewingk Glacier itself. The park, across Kachemak Bay from the city of Homer, requires boat or airplane access. Water taxis and air taxis are available in Homer. Experienced ocean kayakers can cross the bay but only on the calmest days. Water taxis can carry kayaks on other days. This hike description includes the following trails: Alpine Ridge and Grewingk Glacier Trail."

The alpine ridge trail is amazing. you will travel through a diverse ecosystem as you increase your elevation. and at sumit you have an amazing view of halibut cove.
