The New River is a designated National Scenic River and American Heritage River. It received the first distinction in 1976, and the latter in 1998 by then President Bill Clinton. It is believed to be one of the oldest rivers on the continent of North America and lovers of the region proclaim the lands and cabins along the New River are some of the most beautiful and scenic in the entire southeast. The northwestern corner of the state is considered the New River Valley area. The north and south forks of the New River flow northward from the river’s headwaters high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It flows slowly through dense forests and gorgeous farmland and the forks join together just a few miles before the Virginia border. Its unusual flow pattern has fascinated geologists and scientists for decades and is one of the main reasons why the river has been hailed as among the oldest in the world.
