The Gorge

The New River is one of the oldest rivers in the world. Over time its course through the Appalachian Mountains has carved out a beautiful river canyon lined with towering sandstone cliffs and lush deciduous forests. Beautiful hikes to scenic vistas atop these rock patios make this gorge an alphorn blowers paradise. In addition to hiking, many other outdoor opportunities await you here: whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, ziplining, stand-up paddleboarding, and much more! The historic town of Fayetteville is the gateway to the gorge, and it is also known for its charming shops and local restaurants.
