The Breckenridge Troll, Isak Heartstone, has been in the news a lot recently. Constructed from scrap wood and twigs (some gathered by the pre-K kids from Little Red Schoolhouse), he dwells not under a bridge but just over a bridge from the far end of the Wellington neighborhood in Breckenridge.
If you want to visit the troll, there’s lots of information about where to park and how best to visit here – please do take note of where it is OK and not OK to park, as the enforcement folk have been handing out tickets like confetti over the last few days. There is a small car park at the top of Wellington Road (turn left at the stop sign, and it’s immediately on the left); from there, it’s a walk past the Wellington neighborhood to the troll. Once you’re past the last houses, turn right on the driveway and the trailhead for the Wellington Trail is at the end. Follow it for a short distance, and you’ll see Isak peeping over a pile of rocks.
Lastly, if you come into BoLD bearing a photo of yourself with Isak and a copy of that day’s Summit Daily, your first drink (beer, house wine, well, soft drink) will be on us. Here’s where to find him:
