Rappel down to your raft before hitting the biggest Class V on the Arkansas River! We’ll head to Granite Gorge and rappel 75 feet down toward your awaiting raft. Next you’ll encounter the most continuous rapids in the state. Pine Creek rafting is a true adventure. The gradient drops an astounding 200 feet with a must-make crux move.
If you’re thinking about doing the Pine Creek rafting half day trip, make sure you consider the full day Gauntlet trip (Pine Creek and Numbers sections combined into a full day with lunch) or the Gauntlet with Rappel. We guarantee–when you have to get out at the end of the Pine Creek half day, you’re going to wish you were still on the river rafting through the Numbers!
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 and allows us to see and run this section daily.
At AVA Rafting & Zipline, we believe you should know what you’re buying and how much you’re going to spend. We believe in added value to make your experience special. We don’t want you to feel “nickel and dimed” when you show up for your trip with us. That’s why we provide wetsuits and splash jackets free of charge on your Pine Creek 1/2 Day trip. You’ll pay over $20 per person with some other outfitters. You will also have everything you need for the rappel. We try our best to prepare you with gear lists and suggested things to bring so that you don’t end up paying for unneeded add-ons.
