Trolley Trail

  • Location: Milwaukie/ Oak Grove/Jennings Lodge, OR
  • Acres: 29
  • Amenities: Walking Trail, Restrooms, Parking

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.

The idea of developing a trail within this historic right-of-way has been a dream in the community for decades. The trail now connects with existing bike lanes in Milwaukie and Gladstone to complete an essential link in Metro’s regional trails system. Ultimately, the trail will be part of a continuous 20-mile loop connecting Portland, Milwaukie, Gladstone, Oregon City and Gresham.
