Trolley Trail

Milwaukie, OR 97222

This 6-mile trail is a community treasure waiting for you to explore on foot or on your bike! It's a multi-use paved and gravel trail.

The Trolley Trail is the name of the old Portland Traction Company streetcar line right-of-way that stretches between the cities of Milwaukie and Gladstone. North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD) and Metro purchased the right-of-way in 2001 to be developed into a regional multi-use trail using a voter-approved bond measure designed to protect nature and help people enjoy it. The Trolley Trail has been flagged in the region's long-term plans since the early 1970s. Over the years, community groups and residents have rallied to bring it to life.

The six-mile Trolley Trail connects neighborhoods, schools, parks, retirement communities and business districts between Milwaukie and Gladstone and completes a missing link in Metro's regional trail system. This bike and pedestrian trail follows the historic streetcar right-of-way that ran in the area from 1893 until 1968.
