Graham County has been making great strides this year in providing opportunities for safe and fun activities for residents.  Accomplishments include:

Greenway piece completed as part of pedestrian connectivity plan at Robbinsville High School.  The Robbinsville Fit Trail extends around the campus and includes quiet scenic views and “fitness stations” to help you get the most out of your time.
