Description

Talon is a moderate trail with increasing elevation gain. It begins as a prairie trail and traverses through the scrub oak to the montane. Vegetation and views change along the way, so theres no chance to get bored, only inspired. The trail cuts deep into the park and offers access to the North Talon and South Talon loops.
