The trolley is equipped with a rocking sound system, comfortable seats for 24 adults, and is captained by a passionate team of local (not loco), experienced commercially licensed drivers. They offer tours featuring three breweries on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening, and Sunday afternoon. They’re also available for private rentals at any time and for any occasion.
Nature Trails and Afternoon Ales

The best way to experience the YoCo Brew Trail? Pair it with some of the great hikes and walks in York County! Some favorites include:
- Anne Springs Close Greenway: There are several trails in this expansive area. My favorite is the Lake Haigler Loop. It is an easy, 3.5 loop that is mostly flat. The fall is a great time to soak in the colors of the greenway. Be sure to check out the swinging bridge and the Greenway Gateway Canteen for a snack or drink! Admission to the Greenway is $12 or you can get a membership for reduced rates.
- Piedmont Medical Center Trail: This is a 4.6 out-and-back trail, so you can do as much or as little as you’d like. It is paved the entire way and runs along the Catawba River. The Riverwalk where the trail starts and ends are home to several spots you can visit before or after as well—The Pump House, Tony’s Cantina, and Grapevine are solid options.
- Another option to get outside is to visit Glencairn Garden! You can see azaleas, dogwoods, wisteria, crape myrtles, camellias, annuals, hardwood trees, and more. The peak bloom period is typically the last week of March through mid-April, but it is always a beautiful place to visit. Admission is free.
