» Cherry Creek
Bird’s Eye View
Ah Cherry Creek, some of the most sublime and thrilling whitewater in the nation, let alone California. Its class V rapids provide a serious challenge and ultimate adventure to both expert kayakers and seasoned boaters. These waters should not be attempted by someone who has not had considerable class IV+ kayaking experience. Commercial rafting trips with a professional guide are recommended if you haven’t been commandeering your personal boat on other challenging Class IV+ & V rivers.
