CLEAR CREEK WHITEWATER KAYAKING PARK
Dedicated in 1998, the Clear Creek Whitewater Park is one of Golden’s most unique recreational attractions. Built for recreational canoeing and kayaking, the course is one-quarter of a mile of adventurous, splashing fun!
This innovative recreational experience is divided into sections. The course is 800 feet in length, built with natural boulders, and divided into sections. The top is a series of drops and pools of different experience levels and has some fast eddies. The middle portion consists of flat, broad, shallow surf waves with huge random boulders – a prime workplace for gates. The bottom section entertains paddlers with more extreme surf and wave drops.
The class of this course will require paddlers proficient in fast-moving, cold water, particularly during high flow season. There are no fees for drop-in usage and the course is unsupervised.
