A short day hike to Russian River Falls, a half-day hike to Lower Russian Lake, or a choice of 2-to-4-day backpacks to the 2 Russian Lakes. The Russian Lakes, two large lakes in the Russian River drainage, offer good campsites, trout fishing, and great scenery. Each lake has a fee cabin with a rowboat for cabin occupants, and there is a third cabin between the lakes at Aspen Flat. The Russian River’s two sockeye-salmon runs attract gulls, eagles, and yes, bears, for the feast, so practice good bear-country behavior on the trail when the salmon are in, from midsummer on. Special features: Large mountain lakes, fishing, boating, fee cabins; the falls and the lower lake are a fine family hike.
