Mile-Hi Rafting

Come and join the excitement with our adventure rafting team!

RAFT THE CLEAR CREEK

30 miles west of Downtown Denver The Clear Creek River, the steepest raftable river in Colorado, has an average gradient of 67 feet per mile, and over 100 feet per mile on the advanced sections of the stream, this translates to more rapids per mile. This steep, narrow and technical river winds through the historic mining valley of Idaho Springs. This relatively small stream offers trips for fun-loving beginners, adventurous intermediate rafters and the adrenaline junkie. The river is open for rafting from mid-May through mid-August. This area boasts beautiful mountain scenery, with an abundance of wildlife. You can see muskrat, beaver, deer, bighorn sheep, and even an occasional Eagle. Idaho Springs and the surrounding area provide many recreational activities as Clear Creek County is 80% Public Lands or National Forest.

MAKE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

Camp, hike, fish, explore Clear Creek and the beautiful Forrest. We offer tent camping for the person that wants the total mountain adventure, with a variety of campsites along Clear Creek as well as Forested sites. Our camping is offered in conjunction with our rafting trips.

NEVER FORGET A MOMENT

Exciting action-packed photos are taken of each rafting trip. You can view and purchase these photos at the end of your trip for $45 per boat and $40 for each additional boat.

"This was our first time visiting Colorado, along with it being our first time white water rafting. Our raft guide, Tyler, made our adventure so much fun. He had everything under control, gave such good instructions, and taught us well. Our 10 and 11 year old did great! Highly recommend this adventure, along with Tyler!"

"This was our first time rafting and we had a GREAT experience. Our guide, Danny, was awesome and even told funny stories as we passed each rapid. They took safety seriously, which I appreciated and we would most definitely return."
