The connector is awesome! It is a little hard to find as It starts in a weird spot, deep in the projects.

The trail is really well landscaped and there are artifacts from the city's past everywhere. The ground it littered with pulverized bricks. There were salvaged architectural elements near the treeline. I saw a marble cornice with egg and dart molding and a giant carved medallion.

I wonder if that hillside was once a dumping ground for the gilded-age mansions that didn't make it through the last century??

Wow, that sounds cool!

I agree the CP entrance is a bit sketchy, would be nice to get some streetscaping out that direction to attract users.

It was common to use old buildings as fill in the past so you're probably right.
