Bluestone National Scenic River is a living landscape that provides an unspoiled experience for visitors and a haven for a variety of plants and animals. Created in 1988, this Wild and Scenic River protects a 10.5 mile section of the free-flowing Bluestone River. The Bluestone is named for the deep blue limestone riverbed of its upper reaches in Virginia. The rugged and ancient 1,000 gorge carved by the river is a richly diverse and scenic area of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.
