The full day trip is 6 hrs with about 4.5 hours in the water. The half day trip is about 3 to 3.5 hours with about 2 to 2.5 hours in the water. We have closed our clear creek (Idaho springs) location for the season (the... More

Hi There - we are looking to do a trip with kids ranging in age from 7-12. Which trip did you do? We are thinking the Clear Creek Beginner or Upper Colorado. Thank you!
16 May 2016|
Response from Alan_LiquidDescent | Property representative |
The clear creek trip is more exciting with Rapids and splashes so the kids will probably enjoy it more. The upper Colorado is more scenic but it is more or less a float trip with minimal Rapids. Either trip is a great time!
