Where do you find a troll hike and fairies on the trail?  In Breckenridge, CO of course!

This was almost to much fun finding wonder while hiking. What a great way to get kids to love hiking, do a troll hike and even a find a fairy forest.

Find the troll in Breck was how it all started.

Put on by breckcreate.org, a troll moved into the forests of Breckenridge.

We strolled down East Wellington Trail in search, my granddaughter, so excited was way ahead of us. About a ½ mile in, not far from the rock footpath….

A 30 ft troll, no kidding! Huge, amazing and absolutely splendid as it sat among a field of rock cairns.

After about an hour of building our own rock cairn creations, we had a couple ladies ask if we’d been to see the Fairy Forest that kids had built off of Sawmill Gulch Trail.

What? Happily off we went…

Sawmill Gulch Trail is a family friendly hike under Snowflake chairlift. One of my favorite short hikes in the area.

After a hike up Sawmill Gulch Trail, it took a while to find the fairies… wandering around the lake, finally a sign leading the way.

We’ve hiked about 3+ miles today at a rapid pace.
