In Murphy is the beautifully scenic Murphy River Walk at Konehete Park or the McClelland Street or the Old L&N Depot trail heads
in town, and enjoy! Canoe and kayak put-ins can be found on Payne Street and Hiwassee Street just beyond the River Walk trail. The
approximate 2 miles of trail surfaces start at the far end of Konehete Park along the Valley River, and end at the Old L&N Depot by
the Hiwassee River bridge.

Near Robbinsville is the scenic train journey through the western North Carolina mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad
offers spectacular journeys through fertile valleys, railway tunnels, beautiful mountain towns and the alluring Nantahala River Gorge.
The railway offers numerous excursion options, including the Mystery Theatre Dinner Train and the Gourmet Wine train, along with
child-oriented options such as The Polar Express excursion. Train excursions depart from two locations, beautiful Bryson City, located
in Swain County near Fontana Lake, and Dillsboro, a 19th century railroad town located on the Tuckaseigee River.


Close to Bryson City is the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. Displaying artifacts covering a period of 12,000 years, the Museum of
the Cherokee Indian tells the tribe’s story through computer-generated images, specialty lighting, lasers and sound effects to recreate
events. Located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation, the museum also includes an outdoor living exhibit on 15th-century Cherokee life.
