Pine Creek

If you are looking for expert level rafting trips, Pine Creek contains the most challenging whitewater on the Arkansas River. Narrow, fast, and technical, this section of river drops nearly 200 feet over its steepest mile! Get ready to paddle hard for majority of the trip. Previous rafting experience is highly recommended and good physical condition is required.

Full Day

Spanning 14 miles on the river over 4.5-hours, this full-day trip will be jam packed with challenging whitewater and amazing views of the Rocky Mountains. Plus, you will have the chance to fuel up with our Ultimate Fajita Feast cooked fresh, riverside along your journey!



You can’t beat the fajitas served hot, riverside!

1/2 Day

This half-day trip consists of exclusively steep, technical whitewater over 2 hours and 7 miles of river. With very little room for error, there will be no time for bird watching. Expect to stay busy, paddle hard, and celebrate even harder!
