Murphy H. is a great riding spot, that everyone should check out at some point. While there is no real singletrack here, this roller-coaster of a trail through the woods is a hoot to ride anyway. Fast descents are coupled with tough climbs to give the rider a great interval type workout. The surrounding environment is beautiful, and one must keep an eye out for deer, wild turkeys, and a host of other wildlife. It is recommended that beginners and intermediates really take it easy until they feel comfortable, especially on some downhills which are quite rocky and gravelly in places. Overall, this is a great ride, with about 5 miles of trail. One should note that the riding here is only open during late summer/early fall. Also, you need to pay for a Hennepin Parks parking permit to park in the lot, so call before you go. Have fun!!!
