Hyde Park has a rich history, and people love exploring its historic buildings and sites. And throughout this project, we heard that people want more activities and events in the village, and more things connecting the Rail Trail to the village center. So we’ve created the new Hyde Park Pop-Up History Trail.


This fun, 1-mile trail includes 17 signs featuring stories and photos of local history. Pick up a trail map and scavenger hunt at either of the Rail Trail access points or in the village center. Walk or bike the trail at your own pace and learn all about Hyde Park’s history. Complete the scavenger hunt any time this summer and turn it in at the Library or Fork & Gavel and you’ll get a $5 coupon for a tasty treat at the Fork & Gavel (one per family).


This temporary trail will be up all summer, and we want to know what you think! After our trial this summer, Hyde Park can change it, replace it with a new activity, or make it permanent.
See the interactive map below, or download a printable version of the map.
