The Lower New

The Defining Whitewater Adventure

This is where it all began. The New River is where West Virginia's first daring rafters took to the water, and for hundreds of thousands who have followed, the Lower New still epitomizes everything that is extraordinary, exciting and beautiful about the sport.

The Lower New offers a drumbeat of whitewater action, with rapids steadily increasing in size and difficulty from mild Class II's to a climactic series of thunderous Class V's. Above you are the towering, 1,000-foot cliffs of the gorge, around you is the history of railroad pioneers and ghost mining towns, and underneath you is the river that drives you from one whitewater explosion to the next.

The New River is the longest whitewater river in the East, and is unparalleled for its variety and sheer power. Veteran river-runners return to it year after year, and no two trips are the same. At different water levels, entirely new rapids appear. Innocent looking rocks at low water become the launch pad for powerful waterfalls when the river rises. High-water speedways become swirling, snarling, low-water whirlpools.

The Lower New gives your guide ample time to acquaint you with paddling strokes and basic maneuvers before you hit the big water. But once you do, you'll use everything you've learned!

Surprise, a deceptively rated Class III, packs a surprising early wallop. And it only gets more intense from there. Double Z, Miller's Folly and Thread the Needle are just a few of the world-class challenges that await.

If you can only raft one river this year, make it the New River. You'll see why, for newcomers and experts alike, the New River is the very definition of "America's Best Whitewater."
