Fun things to do in and around Homer
Diamond Creek Trail - This trail starts at the West end of Diamond Ridge Rd where it meets the Sterling Hwy. (3 miles from the lodge) It is 1.5 miles to the beach and then you can walk all the way to Homer, approx. 6 more miles, or to Anchor Point at least 9 miles. There are Rock Tidal Pools about 1/2 way to Homer that are fun to explore on our really low tides.
If you would like to learn to ski or work on classic or skate technique while you are here please let us know and we can arrange for ski instruction and or tours to familiarize you with our trail system. We also have plenty of 'back country' territory for snow shoeing and back country touring. The mountains across the bay are our springtime playground for off piste skiing. (think March-June)
