The New River is one of the oldest rivers in the world. At 350 million years old it is second only to the Nile. The New River is one of the few rivers in North America to flow south to north, and the only river to cut through the entire width of the Appalachian Mountains. In July of 2007, BSA Troop 157 traveled to Western Virginia to paddle a stretch on the New River that winds its way along the VA NC border.
