Our time in North Carolina included a lot of rain so we didn't walk the trails we had planned on doing. Instead we walked two different portions of this city trail and enjoyed ourselves a lot. There is a lovely walk along the river and one more primitive. Easy for anyone.

Murphy River Walk is located right off of downtown Murphy. The trails are paved or nicely maintained gravel. One thing to watch for is the flooding that occurs when there is a heavy rain. The river level will rise over the trails. This is a fun place for all to participate.

We enjoyed a pleasant and easy walk on this mostly level trail. There are several trail head parking areas with close access. Lots of folks out walking their dogs, and a few groups with children. River views are very nice.

I checked out this park last year during my visit to Murphy, NC. Great area for taking a leisurely walk and to take photos. There had been heavy rains the day before so some areas on the walkway were under water but I could walk through most of the park. This park is in/near downtown Murphy. My GPS led me way out into the country, so be careful to get the correct route. I recommend a visit!

Very interesting and calm walk with dog; feels like you are in the wilderness but you are right on the edge of the lovely town of Murphy, NC; loved the Indian legend of the Leech.

Nice walk along the river. You can scan QR code and listen to the guided tour on your phone. Easy parking. We enjoyed it.

This is a very dangerous place to run and walk. I broke my arm in two places after tripping over a “cleared” tree that had been covered by mulch. In some spots, there are tree trunks painted orange. I don’t understand why all trunks were not REMOVED before the mulch was placed. I have spent the past few days in a lot of pain due to the hazards on this trail.

The river walk trail can be accessed from Konehete Park which is just past the Valley River Bridge on Valley River Avenue going east from downtown Murphy. The trail is well maintained and follows Valley River down to the confluence of the Hiwassee River and Valley River. The trail is about a mile long and has a series of boardwalks for crossing wet areas and getting around the bluff near Tennessee Street. A nice footbridge crosses the Valley River and offers great place for bird watching and watching ducks on the River. There is no parking fee and no admission fee.

Neither Trip Advisor's address or Google Maps will get you to the River Walk....we tried! Go downtown Murphy and out Valley River Rd/Dr. It is about half a mile past the Murphy Chop House on left. Look for the park! It was a nice long walk on a beautiful sunny day! Paths are paved, gravel and board walk so wear your walking shoes!

Very pretty and serene area. Took my late husband who had to ride a handicap scooter and my mom in a wheel chair (just had knee surgery) on the boardwalk section. It was still under construction at that time (in 2009, in believe) and we got them through it. The closest parking area and the trail to the boardwalk, was kinda rocky but do-able. Very pretty and diverse terrain. Pretty and old railroad trestle to take photos on or from.
