Ranger Creek Airstrip

Ranger Creek is a nice airstrip run by the State of Washington aviation department. It’s located in the Cascade Mountains near Mt Rainier. The approach is interesting as you overfly the field headed east into a box canyon, turn around and drop down low over the river which goes right by the airstrip. It’s important to watch your speed as there are downdrafts and winds in the canyon if the weather is anything but calm. Best to arrive early in the morning for the smoothest visit!
