Trip Details

This trip is for the high-energy adrenaline junkie! Start your day hanging from the cliffs at the Granite Gorge in the northern Arkansas Valley as you rappel 75 feel to your waiting raft riverside. Start with a strong blast of intermediate-advanced whitewater in the rapids of Granite Gorge as you prepare for the big stuff to come. Pine Creek is an advanced+ section of whitewater dropping over 200' per mile - a gradient that will keep your paddle moving hard and a huge grin on your face. As you finish Triple Drop rapid, you won't believe the whitewater per mile you've just experienced. Pine Creek is the most advanced section of the Arkansas River. Good physical fitness strongly recommended. 

But the day's not over yet!

Break for a gourmet, hot lunch of chicken fajitas and then get geared up for your Mountaintop Zipline Tour. Seven ziplines take you across almost 4000' of high-flying cable.  The views are spectacular and the fun is unforgettable. 

77% of the people who ran Pine Creek in 2016 chose to go with AVA. Our experience on this section is unmatched. Pine Creek Rapid is across the street from our Arkansas River Granite Outpost allows us to see and run this section daily.
