Built in 2014 Ranger is a fun pedally singletrack which is equally enjoyable both ways. Either start from the EZ viewpoint and join with GS to get to the top of Halloween, Vigilante or Cleo's...or start at the top of Halloween, down GS and back on Ranger to the viewpoint.

       This has to be one of the better trails in the Hinton area. Great smooth track with many of the roots removed! The trail also makes good use of a gully, which it cross a number of times making for grins and hoots. Kudos to the trail crews.
