    Black Diamond Trail in Ithaca

    I read recently about a "Gorge Trail" that connects downtown Ithaca, Buttermilk Falls State Park, Robert Tremen State Park and Taughannock State Park. I have yet to find any maps of the route under this name. I did find a bit about the Black Diamond Trail, which is probably the same trail:

    The article is 4 years old. Does anyone have any more detailed info on this route?

    I'm not sure how I missed this, but here's the official site--although, it's a bit lacking with regards to completed sections. Then again, maybe there are no open sections.

    http://blackdiamondtrail.org/

    and perhaps better info here (although I'm not sure how old this map is)

    and finally, this post I think has the most current info to date:

    Day 2 of our Finger Lakes tour is going to be seeing the parks around Ithaca and then heading up to Taughannock. The road route looks fine, but I got curious about a trail system that connected 3 of the parks we'd be visiting.

    Thanks for listening
