This well maintained path (sidewalk) follows the Boulder Creek and is used by pedestrians, bicyclists, skateboarders, roller skating etc. A great way to experience the locals. Lots of places along the path to stop and play in the water and tables for picnics. Used year round by locals!

So pretty and shady and quiet. I've lived in Boulder for 40 years and I make a point if doing this walk at least once a year.

This urban pathway is the perfect way to see and feel Boulder. The weather in the summer is perfect any time of day.

In between errands dial in peace with just a few minutes or longer walking along the creek. Free parking at the library and convenient to shopping downtown, this is the break we all look for.

The Boulder Creek Path is a wonderful feature than can be in danger if being a little too loved. It's a great way to get around town, however you will be sharing the path with cyclists, pedestrians, people walking dogs, stoners, drunks, homeless people, high school students, and people who think they might become pro cyclists. You will have to... More

Love cycling the BCP in the summer. It is wide enough for both cyclists and pedestrians, and provides great views along the way.

If I lived next to this trail, I would be in great shape. It runs parallel to Boulder Creek, and goes all the way through town and even up into the mountains

Either walking or biking, it was a pleasant place to get outside. In Boulder there are many shady benches or tables to sit at right alongside the creek, and the path follows the creek up into the mountains.

We rented bikes from behind the Municipal Museum and biked for several miles. The trail was very pleasant, and mostly flat for the part we rode. The only problem was that it was almost 100 degrees and my first day in Colorado so the altitude and heat hit me hard at one point and I had to cut the bike... More

Not a good place for a relaxing walk or a jog. There are too many homeless people camping out and causing trouble on the creek path and if you survive that, you have to contend with fast moving "pro" cyclist, it is not a place I would spend any time.
