River Description

South Poplar run itself looks like it could be ran at higher flows and would run at a class IV.  The only feature truly explored and ran on this is the waterfall off of left hand gap road.  There is a parking lot, small 6 foot drop, great for beginning.

6 foot waterfall, roughly 2 lines depending on flows.  Middle channel always runs, small double dropish, or if it is pouring over river left, you could hit that line.  The rock on the right in the pool is undercut.
