Description

From the Sundance intersection, near the main parking lot, head out on Talon. The trails in the park are marked really well and there are maps located through out the park. The trail will eventually split into North Talon and South Talon. The trail showcases the wooded and higher elevation section of the park. It offers great views of the city.

For most of the way out (west), you'll be heading uphill, so make sure that you've warmed up before taking this one at speed. While out, make sure to enjoy your beautiful surroundings!
