Russell Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Russell Pond is a backcountry campground in the Wassataquoik Valley in the center of Baxter State Park. The hike to Russell Pond is relatively ?at, but interesting. From Russell Pond, you can day hike to Wassataquoik Lake, Deep Pond, Caverly Lookout (the only climb on this four day trip), Grand Falls, Ledge Falls, and Russell Pond itself."
