Taking two years to construct and opening in August 1876, The flume ran 52 miles from Sugar Pine Sawmill to the Planing mill and railroad in Madera. This wooden flume transported lumber and loggers to Madera across deep canyons, streams and mountainsides. An awesome engineering feat. Shut down in the 1890's. Then rebuilt and reopened in the 1900. It survived until the Great Depression in 1933. Above is one of the few remaining pieces of the amazing flume that began near here.
