Enjoy the best of Clear Creek’s Gold Rush rafting and the thrill of zip lining in one action-packed day! You begin your day flying from ridge to ridge over a forest of Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pines. After descending down the mountain you will finish with an exciting 450-foot line running directly into the AVA backyard to begin your second half of the day’s adventure.
After soaring through the air at speeds of nearly 30mph, take a breather and relax by the river while you get time to enjoy your picnic lunch or head into town to grab a quick bite. After your break, get ready for a whirlwind introduction to whitewater! One of our best family trips!

Thank you Luke and Katie! I and my bunch of brothers headed to AVA Idaho Springs for the Memorial Day long weekend. We had so much fun. Especially, Luke and Katie for taking well care of our group with instructions and safety wise. Overall, I had a pleasant experience. Will definitely come down again for rafting, maybe I will move up a class IV. Liam, our rafting guy, was super fun. Thanks!
