Murphy is another top choice among locals and is used by many for serious training. Make no mistake, this trail will make you work. The steep, grueling climbs are matched by the high-speed, technical descents. The loop is short but tough. The tread is excellent, and the trail passes through rolling woodlands with scenic views of adjacent lakes. This area is sensitive to erosion and the trail is only open from August 15 to October 31 to preserve the trails. Tread: Entire loop is hard-packed singletrack, with some loose gravel thrown in for a little flavor.
