West Jefferson NC and Jefferson NC are nestled in a valley once known for its cherry tree orchards. Like many mountain towns, becoming a stop for the railroad spurred growth and development. West Jefferson became a chartered town in 1915. The New River, thought to be 300 million years old, meanders through Ashe County near West Jefferson, providing sparkling clear waters for canoeing, rafting and attracting recreation and campers. West Jefferson supports  an active arts community with a variety of downtown  galleries, shops and antique malls.

West Jefferson area Attractions
wpe1.jpg (11745 bytes) Mount Jefferson State Natural Area - Mount Jefferson rises abruptly to more than 1,600 feet above the surrounding landscape, serving as a landmark for area motorists. Acquaint yourself with this mighty peak by viewing it first from the Mount Jefferson Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Rising as a long, forested prominence, its dark color is conspicuous among neighboring peaks on the Ashe plateau. 
View of the New River Horseshoe BendNew River State Park - Rugged hillsides, pastoral meadows and bucolic farmlands surround what is believed to be one of the oldest rivers in North America - the New River. Its waters are slow and placid. Its banks are fertile and covered with wildflowers. Dedicated as a National Scenic River in 1976, this gentle river is the centerpiece of New River State Park.
Bluff Mountain Preserve -   This Nature Conservancy preserve is accessible through a locally based eco-tourist guide, Doug Munroe. Contact Doug at 336.385.6507 Monday-Friday from 7am - 6 pm to schedule a trip to this incredible site. A walk around Bluff Mountain offers scenic beauty, unusual landforms, and amazing botanical variety. Although relatively small in size, Bluff is one of the most ecologically significant natural areas in the Southeast. 
Sparta NC Stone Mountain State Park.jpg (42314 bytes)Stone Mountain State Park - Stone Mountain is not immediately visible upon entering the park that bears its name, but this 600-foot granite dome is well worth the wait. The scenery is only one attraction of the park. Test your fly-fishing techniques in more than 20 miles of designated trout waters. Or, with more than 16 miles of trails, take a hike in the park. The Park was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1975.
