Just west  of Downtown Murphy is gorgeous Lake Apalachia

"Take Hwy 64W to 294 then north on 294.  Lake Apalachia is the only lake that TVA doesn't lower the water levels in the winter"

The scenery here is always changing with each season, summer lends itself to lush, thick greenery to give incredible privacy and shade. Fall is glorious leaves of many vibrant colors and cooler temperatures to enjoy a leisurely stroll around town or visit a tasting at one of the local wineries.

As the leaves fall, they uncover what majesty has been hidden

Winter brings clearer mountain views, dew on the grass and a nip in the and then spring slips in with a promise of fresh air and possibly even a late snow shower in April.
