Murphy Hanrehan Park Professional Review and Guide

"Extremely challenging loop with constant tough climbs and raging descents; quiet loop through scenic, uncrowded park. Note that trail does not open until August each year. Tread: Entire loop is hard-packed singletrack, with some loose gravel thrown in for a little flavor."

8/7/2006 has been informed that for the Murphy-Hanrehan Mountain Biking Trail in Minnesota Mountain Biking: the contact is way outdated. Area codes have been split up and the Park district name has changed; Three Rivers Park District. Elm Creek Parkway and others have been moved within this site, as well. The Murphy-Hanrehan trail in particular opens in August each year, including this year.
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!!!
