The town of Murphy, North Carolina plans to construct 22.3 miles of recreational hiking and mountain biking trails on the 700+ acre Murphy Watershed property off of Piney Knob Hill Road. We are currently working on the first phase of this project that will rebuild Piney Knob Hill 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 built in accordance with International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) standards. In the future, this first phase trail will serve as the main access trail to the more advanced sections of the park.
