You can get on another trail and keep going. But for this one there wasn’t too much. Pretty trees and I’m sure pretty views if it’s not foggy Very slippery trail.

Great trail to do other than skiing in Breck. We took the trail to the right. Followed it for about an hour and a half where we found a break in the trail to go left. Took it left towards the “bench”. Kept going further and brought us to a snow filled mountain side. So pretty!

Easy hike where you can see the troll. Very neat! Only downside was proximity to roads/ice rink— didn’t feel secluded in the woods. Trail was very pretty with the snow.

Scenic views on a kid-friendly trail. The trailhead is easy to find from the ice rink parking lot.

HikingGreat!

The trail is easy and if you go to the right and hike past the little creek behind the ice rink you get to a cool field of aspen trees. Today most of the leaves were blown out but the forest floor was covered in beautiful yellow leaves and my kids loved to run through the trees. We hiked up around top of Illinois Creek and connected to Blue river bike trail and then up behind the Troll and then down to troll. Took pics of the kids with the Troll and walked back out to car. It was peaceful and quiet in the woods but of course the Troll area was busy.

Pretty views but you walk above the road and hear traffic. Easy hike for anybody but not an impressive hike.

The trail started off a bit crowded but if you keep going you'll eventually break away from the groups and see some AMAZING views of aspens. I really didn't know how far to go so I just walked the trail for an hour or so and turned back.

Nice morning walk, very crowded when I got off the trail around 10am- almost empty around 8am, sadly most people weren’t wearing masks.

It’s not really a trail more like a brief walk through a nice path to see a troll. The troll is pretty cool to see in the middle of the forest! FYI -Chilly weather
