My husband and I did the Murphy River Walk while visiting the area a few days ago. The riverwalk is beautiful, well maintain, has placed to stop and rest and the Valley River is the main feature. A lot of work by volunteers goes into the care of this lovely place. Don't miss it.

We were staying in a cabin near Murphy and were looking for a scenic spot to walk along the river - this was it. Well maintained trails and beautiful views:)

It has been a while since I visited and I love the updates and the progression of walking distance. The town has done a great job finishing the walk and the sitting areas. Nice picnic area and walkways.

Beautiful and easy walk around the river. Lots of benches to sit and relax. Lots of people walking their dogs and several people fishing.

While the main park area is easily accessible and marked for parking, the more rustic part of the walk wasn't very well marked and felt a little hesitant to park by the old depot. No signs. Didn't get a chance to go too far down the path but was impressed by the meandering dirt part of the walk and the... More

This is a great walk along the river in downtown Murphy. This week in an effort to get the dog out for some fresh air we went to the river walk and walked for 1.75 miles. Great exercise and fresh air.
