Cherry Creek: Moments Away from Take-Off

Posted July 25, 2011 by Malina

Start reving your class V engines: Cherry Creek is almost up and running.  It’s actually still TOO up and running for now–we are waiting for the water to come down so we can get out there, do some training and warming up, and be ready to take you on the toughest whitewater trip in the continental US!

The magic number we’re waiting for is about 2,000 CFS.  At this point our class V veteran guides plan on being out there this weekend to limber up, and by August 1st, we hope to be open for business.  I’ll keep you updated as we get the latest numbers from Those Who Monitor The Flows–we just have to patient and wait it out.

This trip is very, very challenging and requires an appropriate level of fitness and desire for adventure–please call us with your questions!  You can also check out our Cherry Creek FAQs to get more info on what class V rafting requires.
