Trail Route

A small section of the Brownstone Trail remains closed due to a large and active landslide. Thank you for continuing to use the detour. Landmark Conservancy is exploring the purchase of the property located above the slump to relocate the trail and create a public community space. This is anticipated to be a multi-year project that will require significant time, resources, partner collaboration and community support.
