We headed south from the parking lot and followed signs to Talon Trail. At 2.35 miles we took the spur for the Talon North Trail and continue about another mile to the top of Dakota Hogback Ridge. At the top the Dixon Trail was on the right. The Dixon Trail is considered difficult to extreme. It was closed the day we hiked, but will open late September and October. We decided that next year, when the day is longer, we will hike it. We headed south and continued on the South Talon Trail, which intersects at the spur of the North Talon Trail. We then continued on the Sundance Trail to the parking lot. It was a scenic hike and not difficult.
