The ecological condition and physicochemical properties of the soils of the territory of the middle coast of the lake most visited by tourists on the west coast were studied. Baikal (Eastern Olkhon Region) and the eastern slope of the Primorskii Range. The studied soils have a predominantly low-power, strong and medium stone profile, a light particle size distribution, a high content of humus, and a predominantly neutral and slightly alkaline reaction. Vertical zonality is observed in the structure of the soil cover. The results of the conducted studies have shown that the soils of the recreational zone of the coast have elevated contents of some toxic elements, which may be due to anthropogenic stress and a high content of macro- and microelements in the soil-forming rocks. The adjacent territory of the Primorskii Range is exposed to the least recreational impact due to difficult passable places and poor development of ecological and extreme tourism. In the soils of the Primorskii Range, lower concentrations of toxic elements were detected.
