Clear Creek Rafting Trip

Third-Day Trips Half-Day Trips

Clear Creek, which drops from the mountains just west of Denver, provides a fun and challenging whitewater rafting experience. The river traverses past ponderosa pine, juniper, and Douglas fir tree forests before tumbling through the old mining town of Idaho Springs.

This Colorado whitewater rafting trip will take you past wildlife such as river otter, big horn sheep, and the occasional bear. Our Clear Creek office is just 30 minutes from Denver, 45 minutes from Winter Park, and 1-1/4 hours from Boulder with easy access from all of Grand County, Summit County and Vail.


Grab a paddle and jump aboard! This beginner trip offers plenty of enjoyment. The Class 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, wet suits are highly suggested and are available for rent. We offer a lunchtime trip daily (12:30 PM).
