Clear Creek is one of the most popular and historic waterways of the Front Range. The Clear Creek watershed covers approximately 1550 square kilometers (600 square miles), includes five counties, and more than thirteen communities. From the headwaters on the Continental Divide to the plains near Denver, Clear Creek connects small mountain communities with Colorado's largest metropolitan area. It starts at Loveland pass and drains into the South Platte River, near Commerce City. The most scenic part of the creek is Clear Creek Canyon, where Highway 6 winds its way through a steep valley from Idaho Springs to Golden.
