Wilmington Notch Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Sheltered by birch and pine trees under the stony shoulder of Whiteface Mountain, Wilmington Notch is a compact campground suited for sleeping, cooking, and showering; there aren’t a lot of amenities at this wide spot in the road. Sites offer relatively soft, shady lots, along with a fireplace and picnic table, but they’re also close together and squeezed between the Ausable River and Route 86. Light sleepers will probably be awakened by traffic in the early morning hours. Two small comfort stations lack soap and hand dryers, but the showers at the north end of the campground have good pressure and dependably warm water. High Falls Gorge, a privately owned and maintained park nearby with short trails to four waterfalls, is open daily between May and October. Area rock-climbing options include Olympic Acres, Cloudspin Cliff, Moss Cliff, and Sunrise Mountain Slab."
