Rafting Clear Creek River

Today, people flock to Idaho Springs and the surrounding area for the many recreational activities it has to offer such as rafting on the Clear Creek River.

Clear Creek is the closest raftable river to Denver, only a 30-minute drive. This narrow, steep and technical river winds through the historic valley of Idaho Springs.
