Get outside!

Eggners Ferry Bridge Trail

In Murray, we are surrounded with recreation opportunities encouraging us to get outside and be active! One of those in particular is the Eggners Ferry Bridge Trail. Located on the route US 68/ KY 80, the bridge trail crosses Kentucky Lake and spans about 1.5 miles long.

The Arboretum

Back in town and located right off Main Street, the Arboretum has a beautiful 0.8 mile-long track welcoming runners, wanderers, and dog walkers; plus, a butterfly themed play pocket for kids! The track features student-maintained plant life along with a pavilion overlooking a pond that mimics a sanctuary-like escape. Insider tip: this is the best place in Murray to watch the sunset! The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk each day.

Walking the "Loop"

The "loop" is what many locals refer to as the two-mile long track that circles Murray State University campus and goes along the very popular 12th Street. When the weather is nice, the loop is enjoyed by many so you are sure to see a friend or two along the way!

Mental Health Day

Mental health is just as important as physical health. So, treat and pamper yourself to a day at the spa with options from Essential Day Spa and The Retreat. Both locations offer the spa treatment that is necessary to get your mental health back in shape!

Bike with Gear Up Cycles

Grab your bikes and "gear up" (pun intended), for a bike ride with locals! Every Saturday morning, the staff welcomes all to grab their bikes and join in on the Weekend Group Road Ride trailing through town and into the county. This is a great way to hang out with Murray locals, but to also see the outskirts of our small town.
