The Staircase is the next rapid. This is a long series of ledges running from right to left. Its best to eddy hop down this section.
After the junction with the Potomac at Harpers Ferry there are three rapids in a row on the far left of the river: a class I, a class II, and the second class III, White Horse. White Horse is a series of standing waves 1/2 mile below the Potomac junction.
This section can be run as low as 2' on the Millville gauge, but the best level is between 3 and 4 foot.
Take-out is at the Potomac Wayside Park or futher down at Keep Tryst Road at Weaverton.
The take-out for this section is on the far right just before the bridge that is in sight at White Horse rapids.
Thanks and a tip of the to Matt, raft guide extraordaire for River Riders.
This information is my opinion only
and may not reflect actual conditions.
It is based on my usually hazy memory,
and should not be used to decide whether
you or your guides are qualified to run the river.
