      The Flume is one of the oldest riding areas in the region and maintains it's reputation as a more rugged and challenging option to Hardy Road. Many of the trails here started as bootleg herd paths with no official approval. As with so many other trail networks with a similar history, they are now officially recognized by the land manager and can be maintained. The riding gets progressively more technical as you climb higher on the mountainside. Be aware that several trails are regularly shared with hikers, fly-fishers, and campers. Several parking areas ring this collection of trails and it is possible to arrange for shuttles from the high points in the trail network when conditions allow it.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Shuttleable: YES
      AKA: Wilmington Wild Forest
