      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.

      The town of Wilmington offers a shuttle service at a minimal cost every other weekend throughout the 2016 season.
