Journey To Chernaya Rechka (The Black Small River)
March 18, 2015 16:52


Chernaya Rechka can be accessed by sea, and it is better to have local professionals familiar with the peculiarities of the tides at the wheel. You will most probably have to dock a couple of kilometers from the village and go the rest of the way through the forest. Be careful while going through the forest: bear tracks can be seen every now and then. They say, lynxes and wolverines also live here.

A land route also exists - the workers of the biological station have worn a track to Chernaya Rechka throughout many decades. But before you start a journey, you should assess your real strength: you will have to walk 12 km, first through the imposing Lapshaginskoe swamp, then ascend a steep climb from Ermolinskaya Bay.

Although there are still old log roads of XVIII century (road, paved with logs) left in some places of Loukhsky District, but there are none of them on this trail. The communications networks in the village are not bad, 3G-Internet is best caught in front of the church, at the “Zvonilny Stone”. About seven years ago the cell network could be only caught here, and a queue of those wishing to speak stood near the stone – hence its name (“Calling Stone”).

Good water can be taken at a spring near the village: follow the broad forest road from the church and turn to the right at the first clearing. The spring has been consecrated, and its water is very cold, but tasty.
