Pine Creek and The Numbers combines two intense and exciting sections of the Arkansas River for an unforgettable whitewater rafting experience close to the Vail Valley. On this trip, you’ll raft through two Class IV (Advanced, high-intensity) stretches of whitewater, in addition to the Class IV+/V- (Expert) Pine Creek Rapid in the Pine Creek section. Following the Pine Creek section, a variety of Class III and Class IV rapids keep the activity level ranging from moderate to intense throughout The Numbers section of this trip. Rafters of the Pine Creek and The Numbers sections must be strong swimmers and be in excellent physical condition; previous rafting experience highly recommended. Colorado’s high peaks will delight rafters with scenic views along the way, and Swiss Cheese Rock offers a surprise highlight at the end of an intense and exhilarating trip.
