About

Join Fairmount Park Conservancy on Thursdays from 5:00 - 7:00 PM for weekly volunteer workdays at the Trolley Trail entrance on S. Chamounix Drive. Sign up for one or more! Together, we will work on:

  • Removing invasive species
  • Tree care
  • Trash pick up
  • Trail maintenance

We will provide all the tools, supplies, and materials for the workday, including gloves.

The Trolley Trail is a new soft surface, multi-purpose loop trail that follows the pathway of the scenic Fairmount Park Trolley that operated from 1896 to 1946. The 4-mile loop trail was completed in 2021, a new gateway to the trail at the Chamounix Picnic Area on S. Chamounix Drive was established in 2022, and signage was installed in 2023.
