Troll Trail's primary feature, Troll Bridge, is an approximately 30 m long gently winding bridge (see photos) about 30 cm above a seasonal water spot that is often very soft. This bridge is guarded by strategically placed trolls under stumps and peeking out of cavities in trees etc. The down side is one can not look for trolls and stay on one's bike.

Troll Bridge is approached on a constructed side hill downhill. Once our spring thaw has dried, this is a firm dry ride.

An nice introduction to one of our first MTB trails (Prudential) and a more recent addition (Cross Cut).

      Most of it you'd need a fat bike to do. The bridge was hard to even walk the bike over!
