Point of Interest Details


This former railroad bridge over Taughannock Creek near Trumansburg is now part of the Black Diamond walking trail, part of Tompkins County’s rails-to-trails program. The Black Diamond Trail runs along the former route of the Lehigh Valley Railroad, taking its name from the railroad’s Black Diamond Express which ran between Buffalo and New York City until 1959. The rails-to-trails program repurposes unused railroad lines, turning them into public walking trails.
