As you board, you will hear the history of the trolly and travel down the tree lined street of Mountain Ave.Still operates on electric lines overhead!.

My son is crazy about trains, so we were super excited when we found this trolley. It's about a 10-15 minute round trip ride on old and new rails embedded in the median. It's home is a great park if you want to let the kids play before or after. The cost is silly - it's only $2 for adults... More

Step back into the past of Ft. Collins with a ride on the trolley. You can park at City Park and take the trolley down picturesque Mountain Avenue to the entrance to Old Town. On your right will be to great eateries, Walrus Ice Cream and if you would rather enjoy great Mexican food, check out the Rio, ask to... More

Step back in time for a fun ride on the trolley that has served Fort Collins residents for many years. A great way to get to Old Town or a fun ride for the little ones in the family. Runs along a beautiful tree-lined street with a lot of interesting homes from the turn of the century.

Make this a MUST when in Fort Collins. This artifact, and the amazing people whose care that goes into it and its preservation needs be perpetuated and funded as long as possible. The rail-house needs be funded to become a museum, to further explore this slice of history.

You can't go wrong at Fort Collins City Park; picnicking, plenty of shade, large play ground, water park class pool, water craft rentals on the lagoon etc. AND for something different take the trolley car tide to downtown. At a minimum hop off and visit Walrus' Ice Cream Shop. If you want lunch you're close to the RIO and if... More

Riding the Fort Collins trolley is fun for local residents and visitors of all ages. It’s a nostalgic experience for older folks who rode trolleys years ago, and a new kind of ride for many young children. The skillfully restored Birney Car 21 trolley travels from City Park down Mountain Avenue to Howes Street in Old Town. With electric power... More

This was a great experience, the kids had a great time too! The conductor John was informative and friendly. We would definitely go again. It's only open on weekends from 12-5 from May - September.
