Clear Creek

Rafting Trips on Clear Creek (Class II to IV)

Clear Creek starts its steep descent of the Rocky Mountains at the nearby Continental Divide. With a gradient that averages some 67 feet per mile, Clear Creek has more rapids in its relatively short length than many other rivers in Colorado. Located near Idaho Springs, Colorado, just a few minutes from Geo’s Morrison base, Clear Creek is the closest “true” whitewater rafting to Denver. Also just a short drive from many Summit County resorts. Bodacious FUN and you don’t have to commit an entire day. Geo offers Part-Day and Full-Day (upon request) raft trips with a section to suit everyone from the Beginner to the Advanced rafter.

Take advantage of Geo’s experience and expertise and let us plan the perfect trip on Clear Creek for your whole group’s technical ability. Prices include any meals, rafting equipment, spray jackets, helmets, PFDs and of course, guides. Geo Tours has wetsuits & boots available for rent. Geo Tours can customize rafting trips, call for more information. ALWAYS FREE TRANSPORTATION from Geo Tours’ base in Morrison to and from Clear Creek!
