Russell Forest Trails & The Stables

Some have likened the Russell Forest to a 25,000-acre playground. Its 100 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails offer myriad opportunities to reconnect with nature. For many, it’s a fitness setting with incredible sights around every bend in the trail.

Surrounded by acres of rolling pastures, The Stables at Russell Crossroads is a working two-story equestrian center housing quarter horses to Clydesdales- sometimes, goats too. Guided trail rides are available from your hosts, Stanley and Linda. The Stables is also a favorite venue for rustic weddings at Russell Lands On Lake Martin.
