Troll Stroll is the top ranked trail at Kingdom Trails in the Trailforks Global Trail Rankings, coming in at #88 globally. Ranking is done by an algorithm that takes into account a number of uniform criteria that defines popularity amongst trail users.

Troll Stroll is the northern one of the three iconic downhill trails on the Westside of Darling Hill, commonly referred to as The Three T’s - Troll Stroll, Tap & Die and Tody's Tour.

Like the other two, Troll Stroll is a fun, fast and flowy downhill trail with many hand built berms and superb flow. While not excessively technical, on Troll Stroll one can gain great speed, which ups the technical ante significantly, especially in the tight turns where the trees like to jump right in front of your bike when you least expect it. There is good reason why Troll Stroll is the most popular trail in the Kingdom and, at number 88, the Kingdom's highest ranked trail in the Trailforks Global Trail Rankings.

With a mostly smooth, hard-packed surface free of significant obstacles - albeit with some interspersed modest rocks, roots and rough - Troll Stroll is suitable for intermediate riders and above but, at a lower speed, confident novices will have a lot of fun.

Access Info

Troll Stroll is accessed off the northern end of Bemis, near its intersection with Loop. At the bottom it spills out on River Run.
