The Fairmount Park Trolley operated in East & West Park from 1896-1946 providing a reliable and enjoyable means of accessing park amenities. Explore the physical remains of what is now a hidden trolley network including massive stone tunnels and bridge abutments along this 4 mile loop hike led by former Fairmount Park Conservancy Project Manager, Chris Dougherty. Meet at 10:00 AM outside of the Chamounix Hostel in West Fairmount Park. Parking is available.
