Went with my teenage grand kids who had never rafted. Had a very good guide, Joe, who was very personable, funny, and competent. This is a pretty calm Class 2-3 ride, with maybe a small Class 4 rapids as well. I personally prefer Brown's Canyon...More

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!
