The Murphy Creek Trail links Minam River/Standley Guard Station Trail, high atop Standley Ridge with the Minam River Trail, deep in the Minam River canyon.The route is quite scenic and passes through excellent big game country all the way. From the junction with Minam River/Standley Guard Station Trail (1655), Murphy Creek Trail heads to the northwest. There is a trail sign at this junction (6,930 ft.). The trail drops slightly through the timber for 0.2 mile, to the unmarked junction with the now-abandoned Trout Creek Trail.
