Ok I get it, this thing is a legend. However if you aren't in the area just enjoy a picture as this ugly beast crushing a VW beatle is only so charming in real life.

It was an interesting design. Not such a big deal to me but part of the Seattle City Tour, so if yo take the tour you will definitely see the troll. Worth a picture anyway

Skip the downtown flare and checkout Freemont. The troll if big and downtown also hosts a Stalin Statue from when the Soviet Union fell. Also check out the rocket and crazy downtown shops.

Visited the Fremont troll on our recent visit to Seattle. It was a quick stop to see this quirky and fun art installation under the George Washington memorial bridge. Plenty of parking nearby. Fun to climb on the troll and take pictures.

Never seen anything like this! Great place to take the kids to let them climb around. The thing is under a bridge and is about 2-3 stories tall in the front. You can walk up the hill on the back and get on the top.

Great photo op in Fremont, Seattle, we stopped and took turns being photographed with the Troll! An easy 10 minute add on if you are in the Fremont or Ballard area.

Does the light rail run between Pike Market and Fremont Troll? Visitors with no rental car. What modes of transportation run directly please?
