Class II – Class IV
Located in a historic, mining valley along I-70 just minutes west of Denver, Clear Creek attracts boaters visiting the Front Range, and those traveling through on their way to the high country. Once on the river, however, the interstate goes entirely unnoticed, as paddlers drop through the steep and narrow creek bed. Clear Creek has a gradient that averages 67 feet per mile, which gives it more rapids in each section than many of the other rivers in Colorado. Several half-day and full-day excursions satisfy those looking for a stomping Class IV day or families seeking a quick splash of scenic whitewater.
