There is a road that leads from 89 behind the beehive all the way out to right by Dominguez Pass that the power company uses (and occasionally maintains). Locally it is called the Dead Dog road. You can drive it out towards the Ferry Swale area and then hike out to the point. Another option would be hiking Spencer Trail, as you mention. If you don't want to worry about getting your vehicle stuck in sand, the Spencer option is probably best. I never went out to the west side of HSB. I know a lot of other folks who have poked around on the west side of Glen Canyon, but I haven't heard of anyone specifically mentioning going out to the western point of HSB. I am sure that some have though. Would be kind of neat to get the inverse perspective.
