The Alpine Ridge Trail is a rewarding long day hike within the Kachemak Bay State Park, Alaska. The trail follows a ridge through spruce and alder then a plateau with spectacular views of the Grewingk Glacier and Lake, surrounding mountains, Kachemak Bay and Homer. The trail continues cross-country through bogs and bushy tundra to the upper elevations of the Ridge Plateau. Each time I hiked it there were new and unique experiences and views including watching a black bear climb a ridge line in front of me.
