Description: This is what Scott's Run Falls usually looks like because the Potomac River is rearly above 6 ft while Scott's is running in convenient combination creating a nice cushiny pool to drop into. When the river is anywhere below 5.5 and the falls clearly drop onto rocks this rapid becomes class V+ at any level on Scott's. When it is this high you could run it anywhere because of the power off of and around the landing zone. Not much lower then this the only line is far river left to avoid a painful "clapper". The falls also grow in hight up to 25 ft. though this pic does it no justice.
