Flume on the Ausable River

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 86, near Wilmington in Essex County

Waterfalls at The Flume, near the Route 86 bridge over the West Branch of the Ausable River, about 2 miles west of Wilmington.

The upper waterfall is just above the bridge. It is a small waterfall about 10 feet tall which serves to preview the falls below. The middle fall is best seen from downstream and falls about 25 feet into a narrow gorge. The lower fall drops about 20 feet into a large pool that seems to be a fairly popular swimming hole.
