Our family of four booked a half day trip on Clear Creek. I was hesitant about rafting on a river so close to the highway, but I soon forgot my concerns. The water and the scenery were beautiful. There were times that I could hear the cars above, but mostly it felt like an awesome mountain adventure. Our guide, Jonathan, was a pro. With his direction, we maneuvered class III and IV rapids with skill and poise. He shared many interesting facts about the valley and its history and inhabitants. I highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for an outdoor adventure convenient to Denver and the metro area. MAD adventures took great care of my family.
