Date Hiked: 8/25/12 - 8/28/12

Trails Hiked: Russell Pond, Wassataqouik Stream, Wassataqouik Lake

Total Distance: ~25 miles

Difficulty: Easy - Moderate

Conditions: Sunny, Some light showers on the hike out

Special Required Equipment: Trekking poles, Overnight Camping Gear

Trip Report:

The trails in and out of Russell Pond area are in good shape. Relatively dry and the Wassataqouik stream crossing is fairly low as typical this time of year. We hike in primarily to fish the ponds in the Russell area and had good luck this year. For those looking for a more detailed description of the hike into Russell Pond and out trip to Wassataqouik Lake & Green Falls you can visit my blog post.

Amazing pics and looks like a wonderful trip, Sal. I can see why you make it an annual event. Makes me look forward to my trip to Baxter later this month!
