There is still a lot of construction activity near Cass Park — a huge culvert project seems to be winding up with big concrete pourings in place, and pieces of culvert pipe lie along the trail, presumably waiting to be placed in other places. The trail surface, as you’d expect, hasn’t been improved at all except, to some extent, by being packed down by the truck traffic. But, the extent of work is, indeed, heartening.
- The blackdiamondtrail.org website existed for about ten years before the completion of the trail in 2016. Its purpose was to support advocates in their efforts to get the trail built. Today, we maintain it only for the bits of historical info and perspective that it contains.
