Hidden Gems: Vigilante




Location: Happy Creek Trail System

Difficulty: Intermediate

Type: Singletrack, Dowhhill

Description: Take the law into your own hands with this rowdy sub kilometer, downhill-grade, singletrack version of a high speed car chase. Tight and twisty, off camber and quick pedal sections make you earn your turns even more than the ride up. Access this from the climb up “Cleo’s”, “Halloween” or “GS” and look for the antler shed “Vigilante” sign. This trail was dedicated to founding HMBA super couple Stephen Hanus and Debbie Mucha.

Direction: Vigilante can be reached by climbing up Cleo's or Halloween Trails.  The quickest route is to follow Happy Creek West onto Halloween.  Follow Halloween past it's switchback climb.   Start on Cleo's with a quick right onto Vigilante.


Trail Background: Vigilante was built in 2013 by the Hinton Mountain Bike Association with the help of Junior Forest Ranger Leaders.   The name Vigilante is in recognition of a past president, Stephen Hanus, who's known to call his old truck "Vigilante".
