Trolley Trail Construction

Posted on

NCPRD, Clackamas County and other partners are working together to build the future Trolley Trail, a six-mile bike and pedestrian trail. It connects neighborhoods from downtown Milwaukie to the City of Gladstone and beyond.

The trail, beginning construction now(March 2011), will follow the historic streetcar right-of-way that ran in the area from 1893 until 1968. Construction is expected to be completed by late fall.
