Explore Konehete Park and the Murphy River Walk

Located right around the corner from our cabin rentals in Murphy NC, the Murphy River Walk is a beautiful 3 mile walking trail that starts in Konehete Park. Walking along this stunning trail is a great way to spend the day in the sun without spending any money.
The trail begins at the pristine Konehete Park. This excellent public park includes tennis courts, baseball fields, a soccer field, a children’s play zone and a picnic area. A highlight of the park is its brand new multi-million dollar pool and gym complex. Before starting your journey on the Murphy River Walk, you can enjoy a picnic lunch on the park benches or take a dip in the Konehete pool.
The River Walk
Beginning at Konehete Park, you will follow a paved walkway along the Valley River. As you traverse this path, you will see marshy wetlands, hardwood forests, meadowlands and a rock cliff. Travellers will eventually cross over the Valley River and follow it to the point where it merges with the Hiwassee River at Lake Hiwassee. Along the trail there are picnic areas with BBQ grills, fishing piers, and swings strategically located in shady areas.
