Murphey Candler Park - Hiking
Murphey Candler Park provides a great hike ITP while you still feel like you've escaped from the city!
The entire loop is about 2 miles. You can shorten the trip to about 1.75 miles by not going behind the baseball fields. You can also make it longer by taking some of the off shoots on the trail but they all loop back around.
Destination Distance From Downtown
There is some elevation change but very moderate. The trail gets narrow and has roots at some points to watch out for!
Time To Complete
Beautiful any time of the year! In the warmer and wetter times, the bugs may get bad so be sure to have some protection. The lake provide a nice cooling effect; during the cooler months, the wind may be brisk and cold.
On Leash Only
There is a leash law in the city limits of Brookhaven, so be sure to keep the pups leashed. The park provides plenty of trash cans and doggy bag stations along the way so you won't have to carry smelly bags the entire time.
No permits, as it is a city park! However, if you would like to reserve the picnic shelters, the city may attach a fee.
