A LAKE RICH WITH HISTORY
Discover the history of Talkin Tarn
Originally formed 18,000 years ago, the tarn was the result of moving ice scouring the ground, creating glacial sand hills and a natural bowl. As the ice melted, the bowl filled, becoming the lake we know today.
People have been visiting Talkin Tarn for hundreds of years, evidenced by the old buckles, stone axes and urns that have been discovered within the water.
