This national park site includes 53 miles of the New River, a federally recognized Wild and Scenic River, as well as the deep gorge that surrounds it.

Visitors come to the park to explore historic sites, observe the diverse species of birds and other wildlife, and take advantage of the many recreational opportunities, including whitewater rafting, rock climbing and mountain biking. One of the site’s notable features is a 3,030-foot-long steel bridge spanning the gorge — the longest arch bridge in the country.
