Murphys Point’s location directly on top of the Frontenac Axis gave European settlers many challenges. Shallow soil covers the bedrock in the area, and farming was next to impossible. Mining and logging was good, however, and a few farmers made a living supplying and housing the miners. Hiking trails at Murphys Point highlight the experiences of these successful early settlers. This trail guide includes Silver Queen Mine and Beaver Pond Trails, McParlan House Trail and Loon Lake Loop, Rideau Trail, Point Trail, and Sylvan Trail.
