Description:
The North River is a river, approximately 50 miles (80 km) long, in the mountains and Shenandoah Valley of northern Virginia, the United States. It joins the South River to form the South Fork Shenandoah River.

The river rises at 4,000 feet above sea level in western Augusta County, below Dyers Knob on the Virginia-West Virginia border. From the man-made Elkhorn Lake it flows south and then east through the George Washington National Forest. The river breaks out of the Allegheny Mountains at North River Gap and flows into the broad Valley of Virginia.

Other towns along the river include Mount Solon, Stokesville, Sangersville, Natural Chimneys, Mount Crawford, and the village of North River.
