New River: Glen Lyn, VA, to Bull Falls Campgrounds and Bluestone Dam to Fayette Station (Entering the New River Gorge) Professional Review and Guide

"The New drains a tremendous watershed. It has scores of small tributaries, but only two of them are really large: the Bluestone and the Greenbrier. Because the river flows through a rugged canyon most of the way, much of the route is unsettled.

There is little industry other than coal mining and almost no agriculture. Today, the river is West Virginia’s biggest tourist attraction. Where small, steep creeks drop from the surrounding plateau to the river, local experts have pioneered some of the most intense runs in the country."
