Nestled in a stunning mountain valley that's only 30 minutes from Denver, Clear Creek features raucous rapids and a rich history—the valley was once a mining destination. Jump into a fully-guided rafting adventure down one of Colorado's most convenient stretches of whitewater.

Rafters may choose from one of two skill levels:

  • Beginner: Family friendly and fun for ages 6 and older, this trip dishes up 11 class III rapids—and plenty of thrills. A quick and convenient option for travelers on a time budget.
  • Intermediate: Dropping 1,300 vertical feet in 18 miles, this half-day trip is chock-full of adrenaline-spiking class IV rapids. Rafters should be in good physical condition, and must be over the age of 15. Hold on to your paddles: wild water ahead!
