    New River
    From its beginnings in the mountains of North

    Carolina to its final home in West Virginia, the New

    North to meet the Kanawha, the New River offers an

    endless variety of whitewater adventures. The calm

    The New River Gorge is wonderfully diverse and

    visually spectacular, hence its nickname ‘The

    excellent fishing, rock climbing and mountain biking

    opportunities, but is best known for being the home

    of America’s Best Whitewater.®
