The Flume Trail Network is the original mountain bike destination in the Adirondacks' Whiteface Region. The lower trails are smooth and flowing. As you gain elevation on the shoulder of Marble Mountain the terrain becomes increasingly technical. This network contains the greatest amount of mileage of any network in the area, and can be linked up with the network at Whiteface Mountain (see beta below).
The only trail access from the hamlet of Wilmington to the Flume is via the Reservoir Trail, which begins at the trailhead on Whiteface Memorial Highway (CR 431), and connects to the Marble Mountain trail.
The Flume Trails can also be accessed from Whiteface Mountain via the Upper Connector or Lower Connector trails, which begin in the Kids Kampus parking lot.
Whiteface Mountain Bike Park offers lift access and vehicle shuttles for downhill riding as well as cross country trails on the lower mountain. These trails are fee access only and not part of the public Wilmington Wild Forest trail system. Trail passes are required for all users.
The trailhead is located 2 miles south of the village center (4 corners) on State Route 86, just across the bridge from the Hungry Trout Resort. Overflow parking is located just north of the main parking lot on the opposite side of the road.
