Located in the Fremont neighborhood. This sculpture of a troll under the bridge is good for a quick photo. Most city tours and hop on tours take you to the troll. It is not a beautiful sculpture but is an iconic Seattle sculpture.

A friend suggest that I check this out while in Seattle. A very odd place to discover a huge troll lurking. Not far from the artsy section of Fremont.

If touring Seattle, the Fremont Troll is a must. Very cool and fun place to take pics. Parking can be tough during tourist season so be forwarned. Fremont as a whole is lovely so if up for walking, a walk through the neighborhood is highly...More

I mean, it's cool and whatever. I walked past here at 08h30 on a Sunday and it wasn't crawling with hipsters taking selfies, so if you want a solo troll photo (weird?) that's probably the time to do it.
