New River Real Estate in Ashe County

New River Real Estate

Besides the mountains themselves, the New River is one of the best reasons to come to Ashe County. The New River isn’t new at all. It is actually believed to be one of the oldest rivers in the world, second only to the Nile. The name “New River” came from surveyors who found a river that was not already on their map.

The South Fork of the New River begins in Watauga County, while the North Fork has its headwaters in western Ashe. The two forks meander northeastward around mountains and hills, through untouched forests and grassy pastures where horses and cattle graze, to where they meet at the Confluence, near the Ashe and Alleghany County line. From there, the New River flows north, through southeastern Virginia, West Virginia, and merges with the Gauley River, then the Ohio River, and then the Mississippi.

As it flows through Ashe County, the New River is the perfect width for many water activities. Locals and tourists enjoy fishing for trout in the cool, clear water. In the warmer months, taking a relaxing float on an inner tube, kayak, or canoe is the best way to spend the afternoon.

With such amazing natural beauty, it’s no wonder people flock to Ashe County to enjoy the New River.

At A-1 Mountain Realty, we enjoy helping buyers find their own New River Real Estate – a spot where their family can enjoy watching the flowing water cascade by from a covered porch or hammock.
