Troll Hike in Oakland Hills [23 Troll Pics]

A fun adventure for all ages awaits you in the Oakland Hills (thx for the tip, Roberto!). The address is “Bridgeview Trailhead, Bridgeview Trail, Oakland, CA 94602”). Or, you can start on the other side of the trail: “Bridgeview Trail & Monterey Blvd, Oakland, CA 94602”.

It’s a 1.4 mile hike (roundtrip) and we did it with a 5 1/2 year-old in tow and he loved it! Most trolls have their own names such The Scientist, Grandpa, and Bebe. The creators of the trolls are “The collection of trolls were created by a trio of local artists, who seek to remain anonymous (and are identified only by their initials C, D, and M)”, according to Enchanted America’s Bridgeview Trolls page.

Teaser Alert: Lower on the article are pics of the trolls we found!

Have fun!

ps: if you’d like another fantastical adventure, check out The Fairy Houses of Point Richmond!

The Troll Massacre of mid May 2021

Sadly, some trolls got destroyed/stolen recently (around May 18, 2021) but the pictures above are all from May 22 to June 16, 2021 and my guess is there will be more new trolls to come! Here are some of the signs/remnants of the sad troll slaughter.
