Experience all the excitement of the Lower New River in a shorter time frame when you run the rapids on this half-day adventure!
The Lower New River delivers one of West Virginia’s most exciting whitewater rafting thrills. Its large volume of water, massive shelf drops, and many boulders come together to create epic waves and hydraulics for a world class whitewater rafting experience.
This half-day rapid run is specifically designed for anyone who wants the adrenaline rush of the Lower New River but doesn’t have all day to make it happen. You’ll meet up with your expert river guide, who will get you outfitted for your journey and be with you at every surf and eddy to show you the best routes through the rapids.
You’ll cover 8 miles that are jam-packed with 17 rapids, ranging from mild to wild. Easy Class I and II rapids give you a chance to hone your skills or catch your breath before maneuvering through the more technical Class III and IV whitewater.
This trip may be short, but it packs a powerful and heart-pounding punch. Get a taste for the Lower New River on this exciting whitewater rafting adventure!
