    I've biked the whole trail from Snug Harbor to the Russian River Campground. I did it around the first week of June and the Forest Service people hadn't been through to clear the deadfalls yet. We had to haul our bikes/packs over about 30 of them. I'd say the upper lake is probably 10 or 12 miles from the trail head on the Russian River side and roughly equidistant from the Snug Harbor side. In summer the Russian River side of the trail is generally better, but expect the whole trail to be covered in deep snow during your proposed time period. There's no freaking way I'd want to walk that far in with the probable conditions and gear, let alone back out with a bear hide. I'm pretty sure the only viable place to land around the Upper Russian Lake (anywhere near the cabin) is on the lake itself. I'd second the motion about talking with the guys out of Moose Pass. They would probably know the condition of the area lakes that time of year. There are plenty of bears in that area! Good luck!

    What he said....

    Walk the reserrection trail. Depending upon snow conditions you could bike but it probably a bit early yet. Watch out for avalanches. We had one cross the trail behind us before in the spring.

    You will want them, for the hunt, even if they are not needed to get to the cabin. Remember a 200# man packing 100# bear coat, in rotten snow when sizing shoes. I would expect you will need them, even at cabin elevation, on first half of April.

    walking in

    you said you have walked in, where did you start at, and how long did it take you to reach the cabin and have you done it that time of year? Do i need snow shoes in the first two weeks of april?

    landing there

    Its refuge so you can't legally land in the flats there I don't think. Certain lakes are legal but if the lake ice gets rotten while you are in there (or the week prior) you are SOL. I don't know if anyone would do it but call the guy at moose pass. Google it. I'd walk in personally. Done it and its not bad. I would imagine you will pay $1000 for the flight but it all depends on where it originates. Very open ended question really. If the moose pass place will do it, it should be much less than an Anchorage charter for example. You will just have to call around. (double check this stuff for yourself, I am "shooting from the hip")
    just my .02 but I own an airplane and I would walk in
    Good luck.

    i plan on making a bunch of calls tomorrow, but what would be a reasonable price range to be looking at for the kenai peninsula?

    "Stupid Cub" is an inside joke.... that Cub Drivers Get. And you did not. I have only owned (3) Three PA18-150's.

    So bring your stack of Pilot log books. And we can see who is well endowed... and who is insecure.... Now put-up or Zip-it.
    I quit flying about 20 years ago and learned that number of hours flown has zero to do with a person's intelligence but does speak of one's experience. I repent. You truly are the man, with all the right answers to all the tough questions. You kill the biggest game with the smallest calibers. Your mild insults and lack of patience for simple questions show your superiority in all manly pursuits.

    No, on second thought, I stand by my original accusations. Not based on this post but on others. You have problems. I'll continue to be entertained by your posts.

    I apologize for hijacking this thread. Done.

    regs

    the flying in part of it it doesnt really say much about, it says that the trail is not accessable at that time of year by snow machine or four wheeler generally, and if your are talking about grizzly bear only being a draw tag i have a db303 tag which is open to the entire kenai penninsula.i have a topo map and there is a good mile and half to 2 miles of flat staright stretch (that looks solid according to the map) that would probably be pretty good to land on with tundra tires or skies.

I am 200# myself a 75# pack that includes all my gear including rifle. I am unsure of landing condition or for that fact that you can land back there I have been told by nimetous people that time if yearvthe lakes are still solid but I do not know that from personal expirience. I am not a pilot myself so I do not know what these little planes are capable of.

    You might want to check with ADF&G before you go much further, or review the game regulations, carefully.

    just a thought

    You might want to provide more details up front for getting some good input and advice about who could help you or what direction to point you in. Like Dates, distance, general area, your wt. type of landing, footage of runway if known or available and I'm sure that others could add a few other things as well.

    I have myself, my 75# pack and hopefully on the way back a 100# hide and 80# of back straps and hind quarter meat of a grid so I do not know how much each different a/c will hold
