Wanted to take the family (wife, and two boys) to the Upper Russian Lake or Aspen Cabin this year. In the past we have bicycled to Barber Cabin on the lower Russian but I'd like to go a little further. I reserved a night at Aspen Cabin the first week of JUN as these cabins are pretty popular and at only a $35 fee I figured it was worth the risk.
For those that have traveled past Barber Cabin what is the trail like? Will we be able to continue on bicycles for awhile at least if not all the way to Aspen Cabin? And if anyone knows how the trail looks from Aspen to Upper Russian River Lake cabin I'd appreciate any reports. I suppose with this years snow I can expect to see snow if I can even get all the way back but at the rate of melting the past few weeks I have hopes for a family adventure.
