Clear Creek Rafting

world class whitewater only minutes from Denver

Why Clear Creek Rafting is so much Fun!

Located 30 minutes from Denver, Clear Creek Rafting has become one of Colorado’s most popular summer activities. Enjoy this historic mining valley as it provides the perfect backdrop to some of the states most exhilarating whitewater.

The Continuous nature of Clear Creek  makes for amazing rafting with each run containing numerous rapids in close proximity. This is really what separates clear creek rafting from other rivers in Colorado. For example: Rafting on the Arkansas river is great. However, there can be miles of flat water in between the rapids. The experience can diminished when periods of intense fun and excitement are interrupted by long stretches of calm water. On clear Creek, the rapids are numerous with only small short sections of calmer water separating them. The result is high quality rafting providing the perfect balance of excitement, natural beauty and just the right amount of down time to catch your breath, soak in the scenery and get ready for the next rapid! .

Liquid Descent offers trips on three distinct sections of Clear Creek each varying in degree of difficulty. Our outpost is located just off Interstate 70  on the west side of Idaho Springs. Clear Creek rafting season starts in mid May and runs through August. Whether you are a first time rafter, a family with young children (aged 5 & up), or an experienced adrenaline seeker we have the perfect trip for you on Clear Creek.  Our beginner, intermediate and advanced trips all have morning, mid-day and afternoon departures. We also offer a full day advanced trip which meets at 9am.
