We are an outfitter that supplies quality outdoor gear along with people that know how to use the stuff! Our exclusive selection of gear and service related items are hand picked by our Rangers who will not sell gear that they do not believe to be reliable. We also supply outdoor guides. Our Rangers are friendly, courteous and professional that will ensure that even most newest member to the trekking scene will be confident and leave with great memories of adventures that we have to offer. Guiding You On Your Next Great Adventure Being a great outdoor guide is about more than simply leading the way on a trail or pointing hikers in the direction of a scenic path. It requires foresight, planning, experience, and most of all an attentiveness to the hiker’s needs and to the surroundings. In addition to having over 28 years in the military, Chris Merola of Ranger Outfitters has spent countless hours mastering the skills necessary to navigate the wilderness. “I especially like the Finger Lakes Trails,” says Chris. “We have some fantastic trails here. Being in a woodland area presents more wildlife, more hills. Sometimes,” he adds, “people are intimidated about going out into the woods, but once they breathe the fresh air, once they experience the calmness or experience the thrill of reaching their destination, they’re hooked.” Chris offers day hikes, overnight hikes, even three-day hikes, and each is customized to what his guests want to experience, right down to what they eat. He also offers a two-day course on map and land navigation and often teaches search and rescue teams. To learn more about Ranger Outfitters or to plan your own guided hike, visit RangerOutfitters.com.
