Poor Man's Downhill (PMD)
This unique shuttle run, locally known as “Poor Man’s Downhill,” is unparalleled in the Adirondack Park. Hit the dropper post and send it down a 3+ mile single track snowmobile trail that drops over 1,300 vertical feet between the Whiteface Toll Road entrance and the hamlet below. Full suspension trail bikes are recommended...downhill bikes are not necessary.
The town of Wilmington offers a shuttle service at a minimal cost every other weekend, typically running June-September.
The PMD zone on the lower flanks of Marble Mountain is also home to the Reservoir trail, which currently provides the only trail access to the Flume network from the hamlet of Wilmington. The trail begins at the trailhead on Whiteface Memorial Highway (CR 431) and ends at an intersection with the Marble Mountain trail. En route riders will encounter an extremely technical rock garden and several steep, punchy climbs.
