Hello, everyone I am president of Rainbow Mountain Inc. Also known as Rainbow Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary in Montebello Virginia . We are a non profit organization that is dedicated to preserving the 97. 6 acre Wildlife Sanctuary here in Montebello Virginia . We have a small primitive camp area on the North Fork of the Tye River that we offer to the public free of charge to camp and enjoy with their families and friends right at White Rock
    on the North Fork of the Tye River and I would like to extend that invitation to all hikers and campers and kayakers that may be passing through the area, to come and visit and camp a few days while passing visiting the
area. You can look us up at http://www. Rainbowmountain. Org and see what we are all about and just where we are located and how to contact us.

We'd love to have you stop in and enjoy a few days while you may be passing through the area and wish to extend that invitation to you and your friends. You will be glad you did stop in at Rainbow Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary

The Above Nash to Confluence
 
with Tye River section of Tye River - North Fork is 3 miles long and it is classified as a class V section by American Whitewater. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Virginia are often easier than in other states, so don't forget that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. This stretch is short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. There are plenty of other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.
