I took my grandkids here when they were visiting. The hiking trails were wonderful with some hills and a nice loop. We will be back many times. Love being in nature and this park reserve has it all.

A great place to get away any time of the year. Hiking in the summer or fall colors, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing are perfect in the park. Find the highest point in the park and you can see downtown Minneapolis from here.

The paved paths are great for running or walking. I wouldn't recommend fishing in the pond/lake but other than that it's very scenic and the dog park it nice as well.

This large reserve encompasses both rolling hills and prairies. It gets some visitors but is large enough that it is anything but crowded. Almost every time I have visited (which is fairly frequently), once I leave the parking lot I typically see less than a...More

I have written about Murphy Hanrahan hiking in the past but felt compelled to write again after running into several people over the past few weeks who have gotten lost in the park. Yes, the park is stunning, particularly this time of year (fall). Yes,...More

I had lived 10 years in the area before I discovered this park. That's the real shame here. The other shame is the number of woodticks on the trails that keep us out of the park in early spring. I have only used the park...More
