Russian River

June 10, 2017 @ 07:30

We are going to do a car shuttle from the parking lot at the Russian River Campground / parking lot to avoid having to ride on the Sterling HWY and Snug Harbor Road. I have heard there is free parking, but bring some $$ to park right in case there is a fee.

The ride will begin at 10am at the Russian River Campground (mile 52.6 Sterling HWY) in Cooper Landing. We will park cars there and only take a couple vehicles to the trail head on Snug Harbor Road.  Meet at Carrs Huffman at 7:30am to carpool.

This is a 21 mile single tract ride from Cooper Lake, past Upper and Lower Russian Lake, and follows the valley of the Russian River to the trail head at the Russian River campground at mile 52.6 of the Sterling Hwy.

This is a ride in the Alaskan WILDERNESS, be fit, be aware, be prepared, bring a lunch and water! There is the possibility to see bears and moose on the trail, bear spray would be a good idea.

Also when we are finished with the ride we will go for a bite to eat at a local restaurant in Cooper Landing. Maybe also leave a snack or cold beverage in your vehicle, since after the ride we will have to wait for the car shuttle to pick up the vehicles we drove the the start of the ride at the end of Snug Harbor rode.

Remember to bring your helmet as they are required for all ABC rides. Also, a parent or guardian must be in attendance for any riders under the age of 18.
