Ranger Creek (WA21) in The Snow

Hello, IFC,

There are many small airstrips that the IFC never talks about, and here is one of them!

Hidden in the woods a few miles into an I paved bumpy trail lies WA21, Ranger Creek airport. I accidentally found it while hiking and found it very nice to walk on a runway! It was cold (-6 degrees Celsius) and snowy, but here are some pictures of this hidden gem!

Thank You!
It is called 21W in IF :)

Thank You! (I honestly was not expecting to find an actual airport while hiking in the snow 5 miles from the nearest paved road :)

Who would’ve thought an airport would be in the middle of the woods 😂

People who built it I guess… The runway is paved too :)

That’s a really cool airport. I love going to these types of tiny airports, there’s just something different about them — something large airports don’t have. There’s literally no building, just a sign! That’s the definition of a “small” airport.


The smallest airport I’ve been too is I67, or Cincinnati West Airport. Either way, no matter the place, these small airports are just awesome in my opinion.

I agree, no PAPI, no unicom, just a sign and a honey bucket!

I question your decision to walk out on the runway, guess the weather was unfavorable for landing, but a family member was telling me about this, he flew in there once or twice I guess, very difficult, ever since it’s been one of my favorites in infinite flight…
