Description

With the help of an expert guide, your crew will navigate the most exciting stretch of the New River. The Lower New is one of the most popular river trips in the country with over 25 rapids rated class I-V. Between rapids, enjoy calm and relaxing pools, stories about the area’s old coal towns and beautiful scenery. The ever changing water levels offer a different and exciting trip every time.  The Lower New is the perfect first-time rafting trip balancing adrenaline and fun. Riverside lunch and equipment included.

Meet your rafting trip leader at the departure point. You will listen to a brief orientation and get your gear (personal flotation device, helmet and paddle). Then, you will have a 30-minute ride on a school bus down to the river put-in. Your guide will go over additional instructions once you get in the raft.

The trip begins with a few smaller class I-III rapids as you ease into paddling and working as a team. Then, you hit some bigger rapids rated class IV-V. About half way through the trip, your trip will pull over and eat a deli-style lunch on the shore. After lunch, you will continue downstream into the heart of the Gorge. Here you’ll go through several rapids rated class III-V.  Between rapids, there is time for swimming, floating and maybe (based on water levels) jumping off of rocks. The trip ends just past the New River Gorge Bridge.
