Hiking here takes you into the wild at the first step off the water taxi. Make sure you are prepared for any outcome. The trails are maintained by a small trail crew in the summer and by volunteers in the winter and saddle seasons. Your water taxi service may have the latest up to date information on trail conditions. There are cabins and yurts that can be booked ahead of time online with the state parks. You are likely to get wet feet so extra socks are advisable. Along these trails you can get unforgettable views of glaciers, lakes, bays, islands and mountain valleys. Be aware of wildlife using the trails too. You will encounter bear scat along the trail... so don't step in it and keep an eye out for bears. Happy travels!

Took a water taxi to the park and hiked to Glacier Lake with our 8 year olds. The trail was ever-changing and beautiful!

We LOVED. Kachemak Bay State Park! We can't suggest it highly enough. The water taxi dropped us off at Glacier Lake Trail. It was a pretty easy and flat hike to the lake. We saw one bear on the path. The lake itself was AWESOME!! The glacier is so beautiful as it seems to be between two mountains. Just be aware that some people are going to swim to the icebergs and some of them might be naked. If you want to get a great picture, bring a swimsuit and a towel with you. Or something to warm you up once you're out of the water I wish I had done this! How many times in your life can you get a picture standing on an iceberg??? On the way back, we had to take Saddle Trail back to meet our water taxi. This is a shorter hike but much has more elevation. You will see A LOT of bear poop on the trail, and will probably see several bears! Just be prepared for this! We saw two bears at various points and had to get very close to one of them. We didn't love our trip to Alaska to be honest. But if I were to go back there, I would for sure visit this again, or better yet get a cabin there.

This is a stunningly gorgeous park with a fantastically maintained and marked trail to a chilly glacier lake.
