Things to Do

Arthur, an eight-foot tall bull statue welcomes everyone to Russell, where you can take a self-guided walking tour and get to know the town’s history. Mosey on over to 9 Finger Ranch in Rossburn and saddle up to explore the area on horseback.

North of Russell is the Inglis Grain Elevators National Historic Site, where the last remaining row of standard country grain elevators still stand. Bring your mountain bike to ride the trails at Asessippi Ski Area & Resort.
