OVERVIEW

Blast down the Arkansas River and enjoy the most technical, steepest, and continuous sections of whitewater on the Arkansas River. Rest assured that you will be safe on this leg of the river; AVA runs more guests down these sections than any other company. Pine Creek has one of the steepest drops of any river trip, and the rapids through this section of river are highly technical with heart-thumping action!

At the end of the whitewater, we’ll enjoy our hot fajita lunch riverside. After lunch we’ll take to the trees on our famous zip line tour. Take on 7 ziplines plus other elements like the hanging staircase and swinging bridge.

  • Rafts on this section accommodate up to 6 people plus the guide
