The town of Murphy, NC plans to construct 22.3 miles of recreational hiking and mountain biking trails on the 700+ acre Murphy Watershed property off of Piney Know Hill Road. We are currently working on the first phase of this project that will rebuild Piney Knob Road, build two large entry bridges, and construct approximately 6 miles of trails. This first phase will convert a preexisting logging road into a smaller, more sustainable natural surface trail suitable to foot traffic and cyclists of all skill levels. All trails will be dirt single-track trails and will be build in accordance with International Mountain Bike Association standards. In the future, this first phase trail will serve as the main access trail to the more advanced sections of the park.
