8$ for adults and 5$ for children. We didn't end up hiking because we thought that was pretty steep for what it was.

super easy, kid friendly, good first Alaska walk if nervous about the wildlife.

We started an hour or so after high tide peak, sand was mushy but we had the whole place to ourselves. Made it 3/4 the way down but coukd've made it to the restaurants/shops on the Spit & back. Even on a cloudy day, makes for fun walking/running/exploring. Kid friendly. Usually windy. Have fun!

Best hiking experience in Alaska! Challenging trail, especially in the rain, but definitely worth it. There are options so you don't have to hike the entire 12 mile trail, but you still get the amazing scenery and hiking experience.

it was nice.

Homer is one of my favourite places in the world simply because of the beach walk.

Beautiful water taxi ride to the trailhead, scenic & relaxing hike! Amazing lunch at the lake! Best overall hiking experience in AK!

Got to trail head via boat ride from Homer. Beautiful, serene, long hike in to a solitary cabin and peaceful lake. Make sure to reserve cabin in advance. There are bears on the trail so be alert! Be sure to bring a water filter-filtered water out of a glacial stream-so pure and fleshing! Be prepared for Mosquitos-they were everywhere!!!!!!

Oh my God, this hike is gorgeous. I got lucky with weather and had a clear day not a cloud in the sky. The tricky part of the hike is to know the tides because you can end up trapped on the other side for awhile. If your careful and plan according it can be great hike

This is not much of a hike but it is a great family outing and a good way to learn about the forest ecology that surrounds much of the trails in coastal Alaska. Educational, interesting, and fun are the best way to describe this short hiking experience.
