Marker Description: The Black Diamond trail is the keystone of a major trail system in the Ithaca area, and has remained in some kind of planning stage since the 1970s. The main trail segment would be the former Lehigh Valley Railroad passenger line from Ithaca to Geneva, New York, popularly known as the "Route of the Black Diamond" from the name of the Lehigh Valley's premier passenger train, which last ran in 1959. This line stretches along the western shore of Cayuga Lake from Cass Park to Taughannock Falls State Park and Trumansburg, New York. Parts of this phase of the trail are already a popular snowmobiling route.
