Saturday May 8th, 2021 10 am – Hiking at Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve

Meet at the trailhead building. We will hike then eat a picnic lunch at the park. Bring chairs or a picnic blanket and your own food. A treat will be provided. Click Here for directions.

This has become a favorite hiking place! The peaceful wilderness at Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve in northeast Scott County features glacial ridges, hilly terrain and an extensive, lush forest.  With the exception of the trails, the park reserve remains undeveloped, making it the best park in Three Rivers for birdwatchers to spot woodland songbirds. This park has also been designated an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society.
