Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, residents of Savage, Minnesota, celebrated the opening of new mountain bike trails in the Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve.

A seven-mile advanced loop, a two-and-a-half-mile intermediate loop, and an eight-tenths of a mile easy loop are among the new trails, which feature a varying level of difficulty. The trails offer sustained climbs through a wooded area and views of a wetland complex tucked between the more difficult trail loops.

The sustainable trails were designed through a partnership between the Three Rivers Park District, Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC), and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and were partly funded by a grant from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). MORC volunteers will assist Park District Maintenance and Public Safety staff in maintaining and patrolling the trail.
