Whitewater Rafting

ww raft - 08 010Each spring, a group of adventurous STRIDE athletes meet in North Creek, NY, to ride the rapids of the upper Hudson River. The Hudson River gorge is rated as one of the top 10 whitewater rafting runs in the country!

This is the Hudson River as she used to be – crystal clear, clean, alive, and powerful. Her unbridled whitewater thunders alongside five hundred foot granite cliffs and through awesome rapids such as Givneys’ Rift, the Narrows, Little Nasty, and the Greyhound Bus Stopper.

Since the water conditions are variable in early June, this trip is reserved for athletes with a brave spirit who are at least thirteen years of age and able to swim. Rafters ride the rapids for approximately four hours while wearing wet suits and paddling with seven of their close screaming friends in a raft.

This trip is donated in part by Whitewater Challengers of North Creek, NY. Their generous contribution makes it extremely affordable for STRIDE to offer a great adventure in riding down the upper Hudson River, including the best BBQ dinner after return. There are limited openings for this special event.

Where: Whitewater Challengers, Route 28, North Creek, NY

When: Spring date TBD. Please check the calendar for exact dates.
