For a picturesque, family friendly day on the river, we'd recommend the gentler waters of the famous Colorado River, near Kremmling (about 1 hour's drive from Winter Park).
Referred to by the locals as 'The Upper C', this stretch of river serves up beautiful canyons, a mix of flat water and short & fun rapids (class II - III), riverside hot springs and various levels of jumping rocks, making for a full and fun trip for all ages.
Suitable for all levels of experience, aged 4 years & up.
Located on the East side of Berthoud Pass (about 45 minutes from Winter Park), Clear Creek offers an action packed fun fest of whitewater (class III-IV) through the old mining town of Idaho Springs, with plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of wildlife such as Big Horn Sheep and river otter along the way.
If you're more into the heart pumping, thrills & spills kind of ride, Clear Creek is the spot for you.
Clear creek raft trips are suitable for older children & adults.
