Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve

Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve Professional Review and Guide

"A local favorite for over twenty years, the trail system at Murphy has risen to the highest ranks of fat tire destinations, thanks to the dedication and cooperation of the Three Rivers Park District and Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC). Explore three expertly designed loops in this undeveloped, wildlife-packed park reserve.

One of the first metro area parks to ordain mountain bike–specific trails, Murphy- Hanrehan’s early paths were created prior to the sensible trend of sustainable trail building. Often rutted or eroding, the trails charged up and down hills and shot through the woods with little regard to fall lines or harmonious relations with the natural terrain."
