Troll Hunt Accessibility

The troll made of reclaimed wood, is laying supine. His fingers are at his open mouth as if he's feeding himself. This troll's length is around 50 feet.

Troll Hunt is an outdoor experience set among The Morton Arboretum’s 1,700 acre grounds. Six trolls and a secluded hideout are situated in various locations, accessed by wood-chipped trails or mown grass paths.
