About the middle river
The Middle River is a tributary of the North River in Augusta County, Virginia. It is approximately 57 miles long, flowing through the Shenandoah Valley. The river's headwaters are in the George Washington National Forest, and it flows into the North River near the town of Bridgewater. The Middle River has been extensively dammed, with three major reservoirs: Elkhorn Lake, Grottoes Reservoir, and Sherando Lake. These reservoirs provide water for agricultural irrigation, municipal water supply, and recreational activities such as fishing and boating. The river has a rich history, having been used for transportation, logging, and milling in the past. Today, the Middle River is an important resource for the surrounding communities and serves as a popular destination for outdoor recreation.
