A short walk will bring you to a troll sculpture - one of the most popular attractions in Breckenridge.

Isak Heartstone, otherwise known as the Breckenridge troll, can be accessed from the Illinois Gulch Trailhead.  This trailhead can be full for much of the day, so it is advisable to find parking in town and then take a bus, walk, or bike to the starting point of this short walk.  Once at the trailhead, follow the Trollstigen signs for 500 or so feet on an easy path in the summer or an icy, compact track in the winter.  This will bring you to a larger opening with the towering troll to keep you company.  From here, you can take pictures with the sculpture and then continue back to your car.  This is a very popular area at all times of the year so if you are looking to get away from the crowds head over to Isak early in the day.  If you are looking to spend more time here, you can continue on any number of the trails that start from the same trailhead.

Breckenridge Troll Reviews

I love this little trail so much! It’s so much fun walking through the woods and seeing this guy. Good stop for all ages and fitness levels, the trail is flat and very short. If you’re in the Breckinridge area, I would definitely add this to your list of things to see - especially if you have children.
