Beginner-friendly rapids make this the perfect trip for a laid-back adventure with ACE Adventure Resort. You'll be rafting the Upper New in West Virginia's New River Gorge. http://www.aceraft.com/whitewater-raf...
What you'll find here are easy waves and bouncy ledges, with just the right amount of splash for the little rafters. It really is perfect for the whole family.
Depending on the water conditions and what you want to do, you can choose to ride the rapids in a raft or a duckie. A duckie is a single or double inflatable kayak and they're perfect for the white water on the Upper New River. Even for the little ones.
What else is there? Swimming — and lots of it. River games. And a hot-grilled lunch that is kid-approved. We promise.
The Upper New River is filled with history from the coal mining era in the New River Gorge. From Henry Ford's silica sand mine to the old miner's hospital and nurses school in McKendree, West Virginia history abounds on both sides of the river. Ask your guide for stories about life in the coal fields as you float downstream on your West Virginia rafting trip.
