Wilmington MAXXIS ESC Enduro – September 30
The “mountain bike capital of the Adirondacks” features a wide variety of riding at two large trail networks – the Flume and Hardy Road – as well as the 3-mile Poor Man’s Downhill trail (usually done with a vehicle shuttle), a long, gnarly backcountry tour on the Cooper Kiln trail, and lift-accessed downhill riding at Whiteface Mountain. The vast majority of trails in Wilmington are on NYS Forest Preserve lands.

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.
Hardy Road (Beaver Brook) Trails
The Beaver Brook Trail network is the first mountain bike specific, multiple use, trail system built in the Adirondack Park. Currently seven miles of some of the sweetest single track east of the Mississippi traverse both sides of the picturesque Beaver Brook Valley.
Poor Man’s Downhill
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 1,200 vertical feet between the Whiteface Toll Road entrance and the hamlet below. Full suspension trail bikes are recommended…downhill bikes are not necessary.
