There are some sections of Black Diamond Trail running next to the main trail. You don't have a walk on them. The views from bridges over the highway are magnificent. The industrial park is not the best view. We meet several groups of walkers and bikers on our walk. Everyone was very respectful of other groups. The black diamond sections of the trail may have high-speed, high skill mountain biker(s) and have steep grades and obstacles that may be difficult to navigate on foot.
  • Carry water and a phone when walking the trails.
