Spring Rafting, Is It Right For You?

Written by 

Are you in need of a surge of adrenaline?

Do you take pride in overcoming your fears?

Do you consider an occasional swim wearing a wetsuit invigorating?

 

If your answer to all three is yes, then you are ready for the Hudson or Moose River in April and early May. Outside Magazine rated the Hudson as “One of the ten best spring whitewater trips in the country,” and the Moose is its wilder cousin.

This year the spring run off from the Adirondack High Peaks will be creating waves in the Hudson Gorge that resemble small mountains. While summer trips on the Hudson can provide excitement for the whole family, spring trips have a much higher minimum age, and are not for the faint of heart. We anticipate that there is enough snow in the High peaks to keep the river at “Adventure Class” from early April until the beginning of May.

The Moose is a different type of river with a series of ledges that the river drops over creating not only waves but some aggressive “holes” that you have to help power your raft through. While the Moose has some of the best whitewater guides in the country, they can’t do it alone, you need to be ready and able to paddle through the whitewater. The Moose is best for experienced rafters, and will be running until the end of April.
