LOWER NEW RIVER GORGE
RIDE THE RIVER
THAT CARVED THE CANYON...
THE BIG WATER CANYON West Virginia whitewater rafting gained its name from the fun-filled river journey served up by the Lower “Gorge” section of the New River. This stretch of river always hits the whitewater rafting sweet spot. To begin with, this is a high volume river, much bigger than other rivers rafted in the eastern United States. Traveling across 3 states before arriving in the Gorge, the New River drains an 8,500 square mile watershed. That means rafters experience giant waves, and longer rapids than on most other rivers in the Eastern United States. It’s why we call this trip Big Water Canyon! Next, whitewater rafting in the New River Gorge provides an immersive day-cation. Unlike many river trips that last only a couple of hours, whitewater rafting the Lower New River Gorge provides more adventure for the buck. A complimentary riverside lunch is served on our full day trips and when you

FROM ONE PLACID PLAYGROUND
TO A RAGING RIVER OF ADRENALINE. Just to the north of the New River Gorge National River, another outdoor adventure paradise exists, complete with its own tumultuous, worldclass whitewater, abundant rock climbing, and ruggedly wild landscape. The Gauley River National Recreation Area entails 25 miles of the Gauley River, along with 5.5 miles of its major tributary, the Meadow River. Altogether, the park encompasses over 11,000 acres, from Summersville Lake and Dam down towards the confluence with the New River. Largely inaccessible other than by water, the remote Gauley and Meadow Rivers are both well known in the whitewater world for their technical, boulderstrewn rapids. While the Meadow is only paddled privately by highly skilled boaters, the Gauley is renowned among rafters as one of the most demanding and popular commercial runs in the world.

It sits just downstream of the world renowned Upper Gauley, whose praise is completely warranted, but the Lower Gauley is an amazing stretch of whitewater in its own right.

READY FOR AN ACE ADVENTURE?
LET’S GET STARTED! It’s time to get away to the mountains of West Virginia and feel freedom again. ACE Adventure Resort’s team is ready to help plan a custom crafted vacation for you and your group! But, with so many options, where do you start? Here’s what we recommend.
PICK A DATE. WHY?
The time of year you plan to visit determines what activities are available, and what the rates are. Not sure, guess and we’ll adjust later!
KNOW THE AGE OF THE YOUNGEST MEMBER OF YOUR GROUP. WHY?
While we offer adventures for the littlest of the littles we do have minimum ages for most of our activities.
ARE YOU GOING TO STAY AT THE RESORT? WHY?
Our on property cabin rentals are very popular and they book up months in advance. Don’t miss your chance to stay in the cabin or log home of your choice!
CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURES.
Most of our rafting trips are full day adventures, but many of our other choices take about half the day. So, if you’re planning 3 full days of adventure you can expect to participate in 1 or 2 activities a day.
So you’ve got those 4 things sorted out and you’re wondering “Now what?” Here are a few ways to create an itinerary for your getaway! Whitewater rafting and outdoor adventures are teambuilders… naturally! From church retreats to
