Cherry Creek

Cherry Creek is widely viewed as the most challenging commercially run river in California. Some even say it’s the most challenging in the United States. The run consists of 15 Class V rapids, characterized by the canyon’s steep gradient. You’ll encounter massive boulders, steep drops, and narrow chutes. While the whitewater is unmatched, the beauty of the canyon will stand out throughout the trip as well.
