OVERVIEW

Two great adventures in one amazing package! The Lower Canyon + Cliffside Zipline package will fill your day with adrenaline-pumping fun. You’ll start the morning on our Cliffside Zipline tour, voted the Best Zipline in the Rockies by Elevation Outdoors. With 6 incredible ziplines and 6 thrilling elements like our “”Surf Zip,”” Jungle Bridge, Dual Race Line, Bridge of Doom & more, our zipline will get your blood pumping!

After the zip, we will break for lunch. Bring a picnic to enjoy on our creekside deck or head into town (2 min drive, 5 min walk) to grab a quick bite in town.

After lunch, it’s time for some rafting! After a short ride downstream, we will blast down the Lower Canyon of Clear Creek and enjoy one of the most continuous and difficult sections of whitewater in the Colorado Rockies. Just 30 minutes from Denver, this continuous, steep, technical section of Clear Creek whitewater rafting will keep your paddle moving through the 150 ft/mile gradient drop.
