Miss getting aggro at your local California surf break? Haven't seen a bikini since your spring break trip to Cancun? Tube rides at Water World too long? Only have an hour to get some kayak practice? You've come to the right place because Golden has it all. Any warm afternoon when the water's running you'll find Denver's best freestyle boaters hogging the playholes as you wait in line trying to figure out how to not instantly get flushed out of the hole. If the water is moderate to low and the air temperature high, hordes of people will be floating down this stretch in everything from SUP boards to blow up alligators. It's a scene, but if you go with the flow, you're bound to have a good time.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Clear Creek are between a bare minimum of 100cfs and a high of 1,500cfs.
