This water trail runs from Cedar Grove down to the James River along 34 of the Maury's 42 mile length. One of the most beautiful whitewater rivers in Virginia, the Maury has rock walls along many stretches and boulder fields that are rearranged during high water flows.
A number of wayside parks along the river offer views and access. The River is also bordered by a number of mills or mill ruins from the 1700s, well-preserved canal works from the 19th century, and one of the oldest surviving camelback bridges in the Shennandoah Valley.
Please note that canoeing, kayaking and other activities on rivers can be dangerous, particularly on a whitewater river like the Maury. Do not use any river without adequate preparations, knowledge of local river conditions, and necessary skill levels. Follow all safety precautions.
