New River Flows through Ashe County

  • New River Flows through Ashe County

Rowing on the New River in Ashe County, NC

Of all the scenic attractions of Ashe County, the New River holds a special place in the hearts of our people.

The sparkling clear waters flow gently and wide in places; dashing and splashing in others. The river meanders through Ashe County in the manner of rivers born when the land was flat. This attests to the great age of this river.

Before the great mountains rose, the river was here. Some say that the New River is some 300 million years old, the oldest river in America, second in age only to the famed Nile River. We think the New River is well worth the best preservation efforts a people can marshal, and we do our best to protect it.

There are hundreds of acres in Ashe County New River State Park for camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing and floating, and other outdoor sports. The town of West Jefferson is nearby for out of the ordinary shopping, eateries and art galleries waiting for you to explore.

There is still time to enjoy some summer days on the New River, but don’t dismiss autumn. Floating down the river on autumn days is a colorful adventure through forest and farmland with sprinkles of color on grassy knolls, communities and interesting small towns.
