The New River Palisade Cliffs Are One Of Virginia’s Most Breathtaking Natural Wonders
Tucked away in Giles County, the Palisade Cliffs are a landmark like no other in Virginia. These ancient, towering cliffs along the New River are relatively undiscovered outside of those fortunate enough to live nearby. They can most easily be admired from the New River Water Trail, 37 miles of the river just waiting to be discovered by outdoor enthusiasts. For those with a keen appreciation for Virginia’s most breathtaking natural wonders, look no further than this corner of the state.
