Cherry Creek Rafting Season 2012

Posted May 21, 2012 by Malina

Mushroom Rapid Cherry CreekWell this is a little unexpected!  Cherry Creek opens EARLY this year–June 15th,  we are a go, party people!  While it hasn’t exactly been a record-breaking year in terms of high spring rafting  flows, (we’ve been having a lot of fun, but let’s be honest, high water  year it was not) we have suspected that one of the silver linings would be an earlier-than-usual rafting season on Cherry Creek.  That’s because unlike on many rivers where high water makes things more challenging and exciting, high flows on Cherry Creek make it TOO challenging (class VI, or unrunnable) and we sit it out until flows actually come DOWN.  In a year like this, when we don’t have a massive spring melt to contend with, we can start running trips on the Creek earlier.  This year, that means June 15th!  There is a chance that flows will come down even earlier, and if that’s the case you can bet we will let you know.  Get a taste of what 2012 on Cherry Creek will look like on our Cherry Creek rafting video
