River Mile Markers
The New River Mile Marker system is a collaboration with the New River Watershed Roundtable and each of the localities along the New River. Our river headwaters, in Boone, North Carolina is mile 0. By the time the New River enters the New River Valley in Pulaski County, you are at mile 82. As the New River winds with our region, it adds almost 100 miles of river, leaving Giles County into West Virginia at mile 170. The mile marker system is an important component of useability and safety.
