Finding Isak Heartstone, the 15 Foot Troll in Breckenridge

When I first heard that a fifteen foot wood sculptured troll named Isak Heartstone had been discovered hanging out in Breckenridge, Colorado last year, I assumed I would bump into him. I mean the guy is 15 feet tall!

I had to see for myself.

After a little research I learned that due to traffic jams, the Town of Breckenridge found a suitable home for Isak in June. They even created a wonderful foot path to make it easier to stop and visit with the monstrous troll. Artist Thomas Bongo moved him to his permanent home.

More research uncovered evidence of a trail that now exists from Breckenridge’s Stephen C. West Ice Arena, aptly called Trollstigen Trail.

I went troll hunting!

Armed with my iPhone for photographs, I followed a few other troll hunters to the corner of the parking lot. I soon discovered a path under a canopy of dense pine.

As I strolling along the path, I came upon some gigantic feet sticking out from the trees.

I found Isak!

I had my moment with Isak and walked back to the car, happy that Isak found a worthy home where he will be loved and admired.

By the way, Isak is hanging onto a tree trunk. I’m impressed with how Thomas sculpted his hands. They are very hard to get right. I was an illustrator back in the day…

What do you think of Isak? Would you like him to hang out in your backyard?

          1. THAT troll is huge, not those. I should never comment on things (and try to be witty) when I am still asleep, lol. He is beautiful looking and slightly creepy also. I can imagine a nighttime adventure would scare the crap out of someone unsuspecting, lol.

  1. Isak looks a real character and quite a happy chap. He seemed fairly pleased to see you too but may have followed you home of course and be skulking around somewhere right now …..
