Don't know. That area is known as the Rapids, for good reason.

First one is very nice, second one is my favorite--very compelling look at the water...something special about it, ...however, the third photo will likely not go over very well on this site. (purple loosestrife )

Ripley Falls, looks like a good one to try unless there'd be a HUGE falls at its end.
Sometimes you need to lay back into it to get a good shove...LOTS of fun!!!!!

We've one here we've slid down regularly, that is until my internal balance went kaplooey.
We dressed in grubbies and old tennies (As the green algae tends to dye things) and held our hands and feet up so we didn't get them caught in the surface fissures on the way down. Blubb blubbbbb

Ripley Falls would be a good one to do it at as there's a nice deep pool at the bottom. I came real close to doing this trick by accident while trying to get a bug's eye view of the falls. It was pretty scary as I was trying to get the view with my camera. As I was sliding I was trying to get my hand out of the loop and figure the safest, softest spot to throw the camera (there were none). Luckily, friction stopped me short of swimming, and losing my camera (which is all I really cared about).
BTW, the first shot is my favorite. Something about the contrast of the moving water with the reddish-brown rocks, along with the hint of a rainbow in the mist makes it very satisfying to me. It was my desktop for quite a while.

This one gives me the feeling of a black hole.

Some WV examples. The first three are at the Falls of Hill Creek, the fourth one is at Holly River State Park.

I love ripping off my socks and shoes to dip my feet in after a long hot trek.

"I love ripping off my socks and shoes to dip my feet in after a long hot trek." Ummm.... that's not all you'd rip off if you could get anywhere near those waterfalls suunto took photos of!!!

Holy River looks way cool. Bet folk could even go swimming there.
