The Scenic New River
 The New River offers a variety of experiences, whether you are in need of a challenge or just relaxation. One of the oldest rivers in the world offers tube floats for the entire family, a canoe trip for the romantic picnic, a kayak ride on a Class III rapid, or an opportunity to catch "the big one".  Whatever the need, the New River will "rise" to the occasion and not "lower" your expectations!
