New whitewater rafting course opens

The end of May marked the first day of a new whitewater rafting option open in McHenry, MD. Adventure Sports Center International is one of the very few man-made river courses in the country. The USNWC (US national whitewater center) is one of the more recent additions.

I have been blogging about the many various plans around the country for these man made centers, and now they are starting to come into fruition. This particular center took over 3 years to complete, but many say it was worth the wait. The course of recirculating water is about 1/3 mile long, with plenty of real boulders taken directly from the mountains.

The Adventure Sports Center website provides details and information on the course.
