Trail End a great place to tour. Whether you are coming to the site for the first time or the fifty-first time, there is always something new to explore. Exhibits change on a regular basis, each one featuring an interesting aspect of social history during the first third of the 20th Century. Trail End is set up for self-guided tours. Plan on spending at least 45 minutes at the house. For other types of tours, please see below. 




 Guided tours for adult groups are available on a limited basis and must be scheduled in advance. Docents are not always available, and due to limited staffing, there might not be an experienced guide available for drop-in tours. 

Please contact Trail End as early as you can before the event; your request will be accommodated if at all possible.  

 If you want your group to make an unscheduled stop at Trail End, please give us a quick call - even a short-notice heads-up is greatly appreciated! 



Trail End plays host to hundreds of school children every spring. 

Have a group of kids you want to bring? We have some pretty specific rules you need to follow, from size of group to number of chaperones. 

To schedule a tour, contact Trail End as soon as possible. Tours times in April and May book up fast!



 Tour buses are very welcome at Trail End. Self-guided tours for groups of traveling adults are the norm. For scheduled tours, trained staff will be available to give an introductory talk and answer questions before, during and after the tour.

To book your bus tour, please contact Trail End as soon as possible prior to your anticipated arrival. 

If you want your group to make an unscheduled stop at Trail End, please give us a quick call - even a short-notice heads-up is greatly appreciated!
