I enjoy riding the trolley and the price is right! I always try to take visitors for a ride on the trolley! It doesn't go very far but you can ride from City Park to downtowm, get off and get some ice cream, and ride back to the park. The volunteers who work as conductors and motormen are fun to talk to!

We rode on a Sunday afternoon just as church was letting out at the downtown end of the trolley line. People came out of church, and climbed abord the trolley for the ride to Fort Collins City Park. It made me think of small town America having fun in the 1930's.
The trolley runs up the middle of Mountain Ave. in the grassy, tree filled median strip. It is pleasantly cooled by natural air. Friendly people both on the street and trolley wave at each other. The conductor presents a narrative of the ride; and the history of the houses along the way.
City Park is a pleasant ending. You can choose to stay at the park for awhile, or turn around and ride back downtown. Fare paid is round trip. You are given a return ticket if you choose to stay in the park.

A ride on the trolley is a ride back into the early 20th century. It's fun to take the kids and ride from City Park downtown and get a Walrus ice cream cone. The trolley is one of the original Birney cars that has been lovingly restored, and another is being restored as well.

We have gone to the trolley ride on Mother's Day for the past 2 years. (Moms ride free on Mother's Day - but even if that weren't true, it's a relatively cheap form of entertainment with kids.) My preschool son loved it both years and has talked about it a lot since. The people who run it are knowledgeable and obviously care a lot for the trolley and enjoy it (they are volunteers).
