Murphy, Middle and Bennett Lakes

Murphy, Middle and Bennett Lakes

8.3 mile hike, moderately easy, two cars needed. This route follows an old road and trail once used by early settlers who farmed and mined in this area. You'll pass a series of very attractive lakes, an old ferrous oxide pigment mine, the red paint was processed in nearby Northville and used on many area buildings and the stone walls, foundations and apple trees of the former homesteads.
