Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Clear Creek runs parallel to Interstate 70, but what it lacks in wilderness feel is more than made up by the frequency of rapids. Clear Creek rafting trips offer you the opportunity to unwind, unplug, and have an amazing time with family, friends, or coworkers. With one third day and full-day trips so close to Denver, get out and enjoy the best of what Colorado has to offer!
Clear Creek rafting trips are best enjoyed during the month of June when snow melt is flowing quickly from the mountains. If your plans find you in Colorado later than that, consider making the drive to the Cañon City area where Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Royal Gorge trips offer reliably exciting white water from early to late summer!
