Willamette Shore Trolley

Take a scenic trolley along the Willamette River

Willamette Shore Trolley at Elk Rock TunnelRide in a Vintage Trolley from Lake Oswego into a dark tunnel and meander through posh neighborhoods.  Soon you will be on a high trestle overlooking the beautiful Willamette River.  Continuing along the river you will pass through Powers Marine Park before ending your journey at the Southwest Portland waterfront district at Bancroft and Moody Streets. It is just a short walk to the Portland Streetcar and Tram.

You will be riding on a historic rail line dating from the late 1800s. The tunnel dates from 1912. At one time electrified interurbans ran on this line from Portland to Oswego and on to Hillsboro, McMinnville, and Corvallis. The Vintage Trolley itself is a replica trolley in the style of Portland’s own Council Crest cars. Two of the original cars can be found at our museum in Brooks. The Vintage Trolleys formerly ran on the MAX Line and Portland Streetcar before coming to the Willamette Shore Trolley.
