    Glad you loved them! Check out the folks at MORC at morcmtb.org. They build and maintain them.

    When you come up next time, check out Murphy as well.

    Murphy has less variety than Lebanon, but is a longer loop. Lebanon has been around for a while so it's benefited from a lot of attention and added a lot of trail features over the years. Murphy is a new trail that, for its part, is every bit as fun as Leb, just different. It's more about flow. Theo is probably more akin to Leb in that it has more techical features, though it's a good deal shorter (maybe 4 miles or so?). What makes Theo unique is its location in Minneapolis proper, which means its close for a lot of people.

    This is the 2nd summer that the singletrack at Murphy has been open so it is still in it's early stages of development. The MORC volunteers just put the finishing touches on a 90 ft skinny that has a teeter-totter on the end.

    Theodore Wirth has some of the technical features that Leb, but it flows differently. It's challenge comes from being TIGHT & TWISTY. The main loop is about 3.5 miles. If you ride really wide handle bars: Watch your knuckles!
