- Rafting – The winding Colorado River and the exhilarating Clear Creek offer exciting rafting trips for the whole family. Miles of river make finding the right pace easy with mild and moderate to expert-level whitewater. Customize by choosing between a half-day, full-day or overnight outing. Transportation to and from the river is available, along with other necessities and amenities. For first-timers not sure about putting all their eggs in one raft, local outfitters enable riders to add a picnic, horseback ride, ATV tour and more before or after a splash down the river.
- Kayaking – For the more independent thrill-seekers, solo or tandem kayaking brings an extra challenge to experiencing the river. Standard and inflatable kayaks are ready for a scenic float or a heart-pumping race down the majestic Colorado waters. Kayakers hungry for more action can plan additional out-of-water activities through the local rafting and kayaking companies.
