We definitely had to stop. Parking was hard to get in the area, but it was a great sculpture to visit and photograph.

This is a Seattle landmark and something to say you've been to and get a photo taken at when you visit the city. The neighborhood is safe too.

Stopped on the city tour bus. Interesting story the guide told us about how the troll came about. People who live in Seattle haven't been there but fun for the heck of it.

The troll under the Aurora bridge is a great stop while you are in the Freemont area. What is that under his hand? Look closely. It's actually real. Look the other direction for great angles from the bridge support. Have the kids search the net...More

Only there for a few minutes (as it should be). A great attraction for Fremont! We took an Uber there then walked to the poke place and ate our lunch at Fremont Brewing. Great experience.

I saw this troll on line before travelling to Seattle. I really had no idea how large it was and how GREAT it is. What a wonderful idea for art. Totally free. Off the beaten path. Let's you get away from the city center and...More

Not the safest area of Seattle. There were some shady people around during the day. Not sure I'd want to do it at night (although it would probably look cool at night if well lit). Remember, its a troll under an overpass at... More
