I guarantee these falls have been run :)
I took at look at this one and there are small rapids for several miles down to the confluence none are all that big.
Viewed another source, that said it was an 8' drop, Google earth images shows some distinct whitewater above and below the the falls.
Local NPS staff have noted that the falls are 20+ feet, and have boulders in and aroung the base. IT would appear that these falls are not class III. It is unclear whether or not the falls have been run.
Tell us about this gauge by leaving a comment.
Permits are not required for this reach.
Shuttle will most likely be on foot, carrying upstream for whatever amount of gradient one chooses to run befoe and after the falls.
