Taliesin is a fairly mellow access trail into the larger McDowell Sonoran Preserve, or a good neighborhood ride if you live in the area. It makes a nice shorter loop when combined with Quartz trail. The trail has some rocky sections, but overall this is one of the easiest trails in the Preserve.
You can catch it at the indicated start point on the map, but the closest trailhead is Westworld. Alternatively, start from the golf course parking lot at 105th St and Sheena.
