Peddling Fun

  • Mountain bikers looking for some spectacular scenery coupled with a good workout will find many options in the Homer area. Drivers can also take advantage of the views from the road without breaking a sweat.

Skyline Drive Loop

  • Skyline Drive runs between East and West Hill Roads along the bluff and is one of the best vantage points for viewing the glaciers and mountains across the bay. While both East and West Hill Roads are paved, Skyline Drive is still gravel.
  • To reach the Skyline area, head up one of the two "Hill Roads" and follow them to the Skyline "Y." While both directions offer great viewing areas, the East Hill/Skyline Drive turn runs closest to the bluff and offers premium viewing and picture opportunities.

Spit Road/Kachemak Bay Drive

  • Biking Ocean Drive and along the Spit Road is a wonderful flatland route and gives bikers a sea-level view of the Kachemak Bay surroundings. The road is newly paved; however, be aware of crosswinds and traffic.
  • Kachemak Bay Drive branches off Ocean Drive at the base of the Spit Road. This drive starts out paved but quickly turns to gravel and traffic. The road passes along the marsh area at the head of Beluga Lake giving bikers a chance to see moose or ducks. The road then follows the bluff shore past Northern Enterprises and hooks up with East End Road.

Seldovia

  • Visitors who take their bikes to Seldovia can ride Jackalof Bay Road which begins at Anderson Way and heads north and east from town. Bikers can travel to the Jackalof Bay docks about 10 miles of hilly gravel road. It is difficult biking, but beautiful country. Bikers also have the option of taking the Tutka Bay Lagoon Trail. This is a gravel road that skirts the shoreline.
