Cherry Creek (downtown) goes off
for those of you who want to check off another hairy creek, Cherry Creek reservoir will be releasing 170 cfs into the urban stretch starting at 6am.
Be aware this run has tons of hazards. many low bridges and pin spots without warning. But there is also some interesting man made (unintentional) surfing. Notable surf spots include Channel 7 news at 6th and speer, the "Denver General" slide right across from the hospital. and "sawyers lament" a Large hole at Larimer St. there is also great surfing in the Denver Country club, though this is definitely considered trespass.
I have run from the cherry creek mall to the confluence a couple of times at flood stage and the best description I can think of is Concrete Jungle.
Have Fun Be safe
