It was fun to be able to see but I don't need to see it again now that I have seen it. It was a little bit difficult to find and there really isn't a lot of parking around but again it was cool to see

The troll is another one of Seattle's unusual attractions. The troll is a unique sculpture that resides under the a bridge in the Fremont area on (you guessed it), Troll Avenue. Snap a few pics and you're done.

You can drive up the troll, jump out and take your picture and be back on the road before you know it. A really fun little stop.

Walked all the way from the zoo in the rain to see this guy. Good photo op and something you will probably never see anywhere else.

If you have a car to tour the city in this is a quick and quirky stop to make. The troll really is under the bridge and large enough to climb up on for pictures. Don't plan more than ten minutes and if you are on a tight schedule this stop wouldn't be a priority.

I didn't know this was in Seattle until I watched 10 things I hate about you with Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. The picture does not do this troll justice see that car under his hand? Its a real car! Yes that's how big he is!

A must visit for a great photo. We took an Uber to the troll and then walked through Fremont to visit the Wayward restaurant. A great romantic visit.

Quick stop, and easy to get to. When we arrived, not too many people were standing around. But that changed quickly - everyone stood back and politely took turns letting each group take photos with the troll. Stop by if you can!

We stopped by here as we didn't have much time but I thought it was very cool.. It's just something out of the ordinary to go see and we got a cool pic of it.
