The New River is a tributary of the Kanawha River and is approximately 320 miles long, spanning through West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. The New River begins at the confluence of the North Fork New River and South Fork New River in Ashe County and flows up through the Iron Mountains of Virginia and into West Virginia. Even though the river's name is the New River, it is widely believed to be one of the oldest in the world, second only to the Nile River. Geologists confirm that it is indeed very old, and probably the oldest in North America because its course runs from south to north, against the topography of the Appalachian Mountains, thus making most believe that the river pre-existed the mountains and surrounding land formation.
