New River Rafting
The New River in North Carolina that flows the Ashe County is an important part of this ancient flowing stream. The South Fork begins in Boone NC and the North Fork New River starts atop Elk Knob and flows into Ashe County NC where the two converge. The New River NC waters in Ashe County are calm and slow flowing making it perfect for New River Rafting, floating and tubing. In Todd NC there are numerous places to put in your raft for New River Rafting or canoeing, and you can float on the river all the way to New River State Park if you want to.
The New River is widely believed to be 250 million to 360 million years old by geologists. Many believe that it is the oldest in North America because it flows against the topography in a south to north course through the Appalachian Mountains. Many pose that it preceded the formation of the mountains themselves. There are numerous guide posts and New River Rafting companies in Ashe County and West Jefferson NC near our golf course communities NC.
