Click here for the story.

Just because it's been run, doesn't mean it's runnable!
This is a series of five waterfalls that are in the class 6 range. Four of them have been run: the three drops of Triple Falls and Hooker Falls. To date no one has run the top drop, High Falls.

For More info check out: DuPont State Forest Official site.

If you don't want to mess with the big drops on this section you can paddle from the Base of Triple Falls to Hooker Falls

Rapid Descriptions

High Falls

Class - 5.3 Mile - 0
Really a class 6 slide. Still unrun.

Drop one

Class - 5.0 Mile - 0.5
First Drop: Run on left, an autoboof, but don't boof to hard or you might hurt that back
Second Drop: Drive to the right and don't try to hard to get that nose up. Its another hard landing.

Drop Two

Class - 5.0 Mile - 0.6

Left Line: just drive to the left and bounce, bounce, splash. It is a very real posibility that you could be in for a hard, green water landing if you pull off a big boof so try to drop the knees.

Middle Line: Just start 2 ft to the right of the rooster tail up top and drop down make sure you catch the eddy on the bottom so you don't mistakenly fall over the third drop. You can also go about over to 10 ft to the right of the rooster tail and still be fine, just make sure you dont hit the big rooster tail at the bottom.

Drop Three

Class - 5.1 Mile - 0.7
