Yes, the east-west road which crosses 232nd Ave. S.E. heading further east was a timber grade railroad which extended all the way to Ginder Lake on the Black Diamond-Ravensdale Road. It was a narrow guage railroad which crossed Ravensdale Creek (formerly known as Beaver Creek) in the location that now supports the "slat bridge" built by bicyclists. That same narrow guage railroad is now part of a nature trail which extends between two stormwater ponds in the Morgan Creek neighborhood. It's a lovely little trail which you can reach by walking beside the Morgan Creek gazebo and following the trail to it's end at cul-de-sac of Cumberland Place. The same old railroad bed extends along the south shore of Ginder Lake.
