Wichita Troll, Wichita – Kansas Tuesdays January 7, 2020

While I planned on heading east this week, I decided to come back to Wichita for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. I posted a YouTube yesterday about Hidden Troll, Keeper Of The Plains & Veterans Memorial – YouTube Video. I also posted about A Blog Post Choice Conundrum and How I Resolved It – January 6, 2020 which was based on Atlas Obscura – https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/the-wichita-troll-wichita-kansas. Best viewed at night as it has an eerie green glow.

Glad I didn’t go looking for it without checking GPS for the Troll. It’s nowhere near where I thought it was located. I thought it was more north and west of where it is. I was actually close to it a few years ago and didn’t know it. See Google Maps link below. The Troll is locked up because vandals have damaged the statue when it was easily accessible.

Know Before You Go

Park in the lot east of the Westar (Evergy) Power building—don’t park in their lot, it is heavily surveilled. Follow the trail towards the river and make a right. Walk past the power building to find the storm drain.
