Heritage Estates

New River

Heritage Estates is twice blessed with access to the South Fork of the New River, a top flight scenic river notable for fishing, floating, and kayaking.  The river runs both east and west of the subdivision, with shared river access for members on Riversound Road.

Heritage Estates has a national scenic treasure – the New River – on both sides!

Kayaking (kayaks work better than canoes here)

Looking downstream: the Gazebo just out of sight around the bend. Heritage Estates on and below the bluff behind.

Floating from the Daniel Daughters bridge on the west side to the gazebo on the east site is a one hour kayak run or an afternoon-long tube float.  (See the sidebar note on river levels.  Best to stay away from the low water bridges if the water is at all high!)
