E-270 Playwave?

Next time you are driving east on the 270 look down to your right just before Suncore Energy and notice the glassy lead-in to the juicy foam pile. Bring your nose and ear plugs. Has anyone hit this little treasure hiding in Denver's most polluted industrialized sector?

No, but I drive past it every day now and have thought about it myself. Is there any access? Or do you end up doing all kinds of illegal crossings just to paddle in industrial effluent? is offline   Reply With Quote

I don't know if it's the one you are talking about,but at real high flows there is a really fast,tall ,skinny pile with huge eddies on both sides feeding back into it.The drop is a concave concrete apron with a groove apx 2 - 3 ft. wide and a foot deep, down the center.So everything funnels into a fast narrow tongue going down a fairly big drop when it hits the pool it piles up pretty high the pool is symmetrical onion shape with strong feeder eddies eddies.Did I mention the water quality,HIDEOUS,unboatable in my opinion .There are some other drops that look fun if it was clean;a concrete slide with powerful typewriter hole,a broken down railroad tie falls has a line w boof far right,a fake rapid at Quebec that is a 3/4 boulder slalom [ a rapid not just a drop].

Check out the Mystery Spot...

That Little wave hole is in the Burlington Ditch. And there is an insane mystery move spot about 100 yards up-ditch. The whole ditch goes through a huge siphon... about 50 feet deep. under sand creek for about 100 ft and up on the other side. Someone should test the out this spot without a PFD

Not really sure how to drive there... but the sand creek bike path goes right by it. might have to jump a fence... the water quality is similar to Confluence Park.

Cayo, what you are referring to (I think) is all the junky drops on Sand Creek. the water quality is definitely terrible and there are numerous super industrial Class V+ hazards...
