Clear Creek Inflatable Kayaking trips

Clear Creek is like no other stretch of river in the country and this is one of the most unique trips we offer. We start our trip on a spectacularly beautiful, remote, and extremely rarely run tributary of the Klamath - it is very narrow with high canyon walls and the water is as clear and clean as its name implies. It is truly a magical place that you have to see to believe.

Once we meet the Klamath we continue down stream and enjoy the Klamath River at higher spring flows. The trip offers perfect rapids for Inflatable Kayaking, spectacular mountain scenery, beautiful side hikes, and a chance to run a stretch of river that is rarely seen (or even heard of).

While you do need to be in reasonable physical conditions you do not need to have any previous rafting or kayaking experience. Our Inflatable Kayaking Trips start with a dry land session where you learn basic river hydrology, how to read rapids, and basic paddle skills. We then have some on river practice and soon begin making our way down river. Our trips are raft supported and an instructor is always close by to help you pick your lines, give you tips, and of course, if needed, to fish you out of the water.

Clear Creek has a very short window of time where there are run-able flows. We generally run one to two trips a year in late May and Early June. It is a classic Momentum spring trip. Remote, very rarely run, with the kind of challenging logistics that we relish! We truly love showing people this place.
