Worth the summer trolley ride with the kids. Takes you back to the era of trolley transit through one of Ft. Collins quaint, older neighborhoods. Limited summer hours but worth the trip with little ones or seniors.

My grand daughter's friend had a birthday party on this railcar. Guide was interesting and gave a brief history of the railcars and the opportunities for volunteers. Kids all had a great time.

Great to ride from Old Town to City Park and back along the most popular street in Ft. Collins, Mountain Avenue. Our grandson loves it and enjoys the reversing of the seats process.

A trip on the Ft collins Trolley is truly a step back in time when things were slower, simpler and makes you want it to last longer. Silence your mobile phone and enjoy the ride. Trolley car #21 is a completely restored electric trolley that...More

Step back in history with the only remaining trolley in FC. It's a joy to ride from City Park to Old Town (and back) and few the stately homes on Mountain Avenue. Many from the early 1900s.

When we have visitors in town I enjoy showing off the trolley here in Old Town. It is a simple, inexpensive and short excursion for guests.

Inexpensive and enjoyable ride from the park to downtown and back. Old trolley car restored beautifully. A nice ride on a good day. Not incredibly exciting for teens, but the little kids really get a kick out of it.

The price is right, and kids some it. It goes down the middle of Mountain Ave for several blocks. The conductors and engineers make the trip memorable. Highly recommend.

Relatively inexpensive. My wife thinks it is only a few bucks. A very short ride, but a cool experience.
