This is the upper most raftable section of the Arkansas River and offers outstanding class IV-V whitewater rafting with breathtaking scenery. You will start your river adventure in the tiny town of Granite, Colorado and get warmed up with Class III/IV rapids in the spectacular Granite Gorge. Then comes the Class V Pine Creek section where the river narrows and the serious whitewater rafting begins!
We scout this section and walking around is an option for those not feeling comfortable with the difficult section of whitewater. After Pine Creek, you’ll enjoy the towering waves of Triple Drop, then the Go-Go Clusters, and James Bond Turn. After all of this, you still get to enjoy the entire Numbers section that is full of technical and continuous Class IV whitewater.
Intense paddling and the ability to listen and take instruction are required of all participants. Prior rafting experience is necessary for the Pine Creek section.
The raft trip, shuttle, splash gear, wetsuit, snacks and lunch (when specified). Photos are not included but can be purchased online immediately after the trip!
What to Wear Rafting
We suggest wearing quick drying clothing such as non-cotton shorts and t-shirt or bathing suit. Be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen (you will be rafting at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device, and comfortable walking shoes. We will provide you with neoprene booties, so your shoes will not be going in the river. Bring a towel and a change of clothes for the ride home.
Our shuttles will act as your mobile locker room. Everything that is not going on the water will stay on the van! It will be manned at all times or locked throughout your voyage to ensure your stuff will be there upon your return.
