IV Rapid Whitewater Rafting @ Hudson River Gorge
Whitewater Rafting on the Hudson River Gorge Adirondack Mountains, New York The right rafting trips ... at the right prices ...in the right locations! "White Water Rafting Dam Releases ...the most fun you'll have all year!"
In June, we had Rapid III Whitewater Rafting @ Lehigh River. Many of you mentined the water was too calm and were interested in Rapid IV Whitewater Rafting. So here you are, and we are going to Hudson River for Rapid IV WR.
A whitewater rafting trip through the Hudson River Gorge means western-style whitewater adventure right here in the central Adirondacks of New York! The Hudson River Gorge is rated one of the Top 10 whitewater rafting runs in America. And no wonder! This is the Hudson River as she was meant to be ... crystal clear, clean, alive and powerful, as her unbridled whitewater thunders alongside 500-foot granite cliffs, and through awesome rapids like Givneys' Rift, the Narrows, Little Nasty and Greyhound Bus Stopper. The Hudson River's whitewater is most powerful in the spring and fall; rafting is somewhat more moderate in mid-summer. Scheduled whitewater dam releases assure terrific rafting fun all season long.
