Rafting Trips

Clear Creek Rafting Colorado Trip

Clear Creek, which drops from the mountains just west of Denver, provides some of the most continuous white water in Colorado. The river traverses past Ponderosa pine, Juniper, and Douglas fir tree forests, old gold mine shafts, and through the historic mining town of Idaho Springs, which is where the Colorado Gold Rush began.

Between rapids, check out the hills alongside the river for bighorn sheep and other wildlife, like river otters and bears.

Our Clear Creek rafting office is just 30 minutes from Denver, 45 minutes from Winter Park, and 1-1/4 hours from Boulder with easy access from Winter Park, Fraser, Grand Lake, Breckenridge, Vail, Denver, and Estes Park.

Clear Creek Colorado Rafting
Beginner Rafting Adventure

Grab a paddle and jump aboard! This beginner trip offers plenty of enjoyment. The Class II/III rapids are frequent and playful so plan on getting wet as you negotiate your way down the river. This trip accommodates children as young as 7 years of age which makes it a fun family experience. Because the water is usually cold early season, wetsuits are highly suggested and are available for rent.

We typically run no more than 7 customers per raft.  Please note that we may reduce capacity in a raft due to water levels or weight distribution.  We always try to keep groups together, but please note there is always a small possibility your group may be split between rafts if necessary.  Thanks for your understanding.
