Clear Creek - Beginner Trip 1/3 Day
Float by the historic water wheel, search for wildlife, and hone your skills paddling through rapids. This beginner trip offers plenty of excitement for first timers, or youngsters looking for an introduction to the awesome whitewater in Clear Creek. This is not a float trip, as the gradient of Clear Creek provides splashy class II/III rapids. Minimum age is 5 years old, but during high water (early June) we reserve the right to increase the minimum age to a higher number. Length: 2-3 hours
