One of my favorite past times to do is go for a walk with my dog Charley at the River Walk in Murphy, NC. The river walk was constructed and is now maintained by volunteers, who dedicate their time and energy so that visitors can enjoy the views along the Valley and Hiawassee Rivers. Charley and I are forever grateful for their hard work and dedication that comes from a love for this area.
This River Walk is another reason why I am glad to call the mountains my home. The walk is approximately three miles from start to finish. Along the way, there are many areas that you can stop and relax, have a picnic or cast a fishing line.
Since autumn has paved the way for more unobstructed views of theriver that might be normally hidden by the leaves in the summertime, I took the opportunity to take some photos to share with you.
Right now both rivers are very shallow which creates many areas for the waters to rush along the rocks. In the summertime the Tennessee Valley Authority releases more water into the rivers, allowing more water for boating and fishing.
You will also have more opportunity to spot the otters at play as you enjoy your walk or float down the river.During the spring and summer there are always a variety of flowers and plants along the way to enjoy. Oh course, in the fall you have the beautiful autumn leaves.Whether you want to take a stroll, go for a run, walk your dog, sit andrelax by the river, go fishing or have a picnic, you will enjoy spending time at the River Walk in Murphy, NC.
