Wilmington is a town that lies towards the edges of the Adirondack Mountains, and is somewhere almost entirely defined by rocky mountain land. Not only this, but the stunning natural scenery brightens your view every way you look, and is something that keeps people coming back year after year. The nearby Whiteface Mountain is one of the most famous in the world, and is a hub for skiing in winter months, and hiking throughout the rest of the year. Here, you can also try mountain climbing. High Falls Gorge offers amazing scenery as you wind your way through the trees on the floor of the gorge, and Esther Mountain offers mountain panoramas as you hike. At the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, you can see local wildlife such as wolves.
