This special hike is FREE for all as part of our ongoing fundraising campaign to support completion of the Trolley Trail network. This hike will be led by Fairmount Park Conservancy’s Kevin Roche.

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. Meet at 1pm outside of the Chamounix Hostel in West Fairmount Park. Parking is available.
