Rugged hillsides, pastoral meadows and farmlands surround one of the oldest rivers in North America — the New River. Its banks are fertile and covered with wildflowers. Dedicated as a National Scenic River in 1976, this gentle river is the centerpiece of New River State Park.

The New River area still maintains an old-fashioned charm. Mountain roads are narrow and winding, dotted with small farms, churches and country stores. The river itself is tranquil, offering good bass fishing, trout streams, excellent birding and inspiring mountain scenery. But perhaps the best way to absorb and appreciate the river’s peacefulness is from the seat of a canoe. 4 areas with access make up 2,200 acres of State Park and provide spots for camping, canoeing, picnicking and fishing.

Local outfitters: New River Outfitters, 800/982-9190; Wahoo’s Adventures, 800/444-7238; Zaloo’s Canoes, 800/535-4027.
