Spencer Bench Cabin access is via a Spencer lakeside trail about 4 miles from the lake to the cabin. Drop offs generally meet at 10:0 AM and 5:30 PM with Spencer Glacier Lake pickups at 11:30 AM or 6:30 PM.
The backcountry jet tour was fantastic! It was a personal tour for our family of four where we didn’t see a road, car or another person! We were in the backcountry in no time and it was spectacular!
We did a jet boat trip with Andy to Spencer Glacier the following day to see the ice field and glacier up close. Very professional, fun, and memorable. Thanks, Andy! Highly recommend!
