Clear Creek Intermediate Rafting


Our Most Popular Trip


This is our most popular trip! The Clear Creek Intermediate rafting trip is so popular because it provides exciting rafting for adventurous first-timers and seasoned veterans.  From the very start of this trip, this section is continuous with Class III/IV rapids like “Hemorrhoid”, “Fall River”, “Deliverance”, “Nomad” and “Phoenix”. 

The guide will teach guests proper paddling techniques to help the crew maneuver their way down this fast-moving creek toward the grand finale,“Outer Limits”. These tricky rapids will give boaters an adrenaline rush they have been waiting for and the sense of a job well done. Guests will be soaking wet and smiling at the end of this adventure!

First time on the whitewater, NO FEAR!

I 100% recommend this group for white water rafting. It appears to be the most popular company when you search online, and there is a good reason for it. This was my first time white water rafting, and my friends signed us up for the intermediate tour - I was a little scared, but expected that the guide would help me figure out what to do. It was a blast. The company orients you well, teaches you how to paddle and stay safe. Our guide led us expertly as we had a great time on the water, getting our whole group to act like a team. They have great gear, very clean. All staff members there are friendly and helpful. We arrived an hour before our trip started, and they were very chill about letting us hang out on their couches and picnic tables. I met the owner, who opened Liquid Descent 8 years ago. He says he works to build a culture within the staff where they care about connecting you with nature, helping you expand your comfort zones, and creating good memories with your friends.
Perfect Ride!

We rafted for our first time yesterday and couldn't have been happier with our choice to go with Liquid Descent! We chose the intermediate ride and it was perfect. We had Kenny and Ben as guides (both of which deserve raises and all the white water praises!) The staff was professional and made sure safety was the number one priority. The staff was also FUN. We laughed the whole time we were on the river. We will never raft with any other company and can't wait to get out on the river again with Liquid Descent.
Awesome first time

Our first rafting trip, and it was AWESOME! We did the 1/2 day intermediate on Clear Creek. Our guide was Jordan, and he was great; very knowledgeable and personable. They gave us all the equipment we needed, a bit of training, and we were in the water. It was pretty high and moving fast, but Jordan got us through without incident. It was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. The scenery was picturesque. We loved our time out there and recommend Liquid Descent to everyone!
