The Flume Knob is another hidden gem in the Wilmington Region that should not be missed. The view of Whiteface Mountain and beyond is amazing!

Turn into the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center and follow the road around to the right and to the Bear Den Lot.  At the Bear Den Lot in the ski area the trail is located to the north side of the parking lot. 

This trail is also designated as a mountain biking trail. The trail flows along the hillside through a rough area that can be very wet. After 0.5 miles, the Bear Den Mountain Trail goes left, but follow the trail continuing straight ahead for another 0.2 miles or so to the Flume Trail on the left. 

The summit is rocky and open.  Beside the close up view of Whiteface there are plenty of other high peaks you will see.  You can also see the Green Mountains of Vermont.
