Isak Heartstone. Troll.

It's a troll. In the forest. Come see it.

Troll in the forest.

Isak Heartstone: 15-Foot-Tall Troll

Covid safe! One-way, 400 ft. trails to and fro. One section is perfectly smooth for a wheelchair, while the rest would be bumpy but doable. Lovely woodland location is an absolutely perfect place for a troll to have a sit down.

Picnic tables are available, with one that is built around a couple of trees! Portapotties and hand wash station in the parking lot make this an easy and satisfying stop to stretch your legs if you are just passing through town.
