Great walking or biking path next to the university of Colorado..lovely little stream of water with parkland all around, can be busy and lot of homeless people frequent the adjacent parkland but seemed safe as a woman walking alone as lots of walkers, nice shade on a hot sunny day

Our group of six divided into walkers and bike riders to travel this awesome multi-use trail. Since it was a gorgeous day this well maintained paved trail was being used by families out for a stroll, joggers, cyclists, couples, and dog walkers. The views were beautiful all along the way, including the fast moving river which enticed several people to... More

Just a gorgeous multi-use trail - was lovely to walk or ride or simply move through. Boulder Creek is awesome, and the views are wonderful at every turn. Really cool how they built this around the road but away from it.

I love this walk. Nature AND the city within feet of eachother. Bring a few tubes and go tubing! I saw someone reading on a hammock between two trees. Good path for walking or biking.

This is a great trail with lots of variety. We did the real uphill (and downhill) part, and it was beautiful.

Boulder Creek Pathway is a nicely designed community ammenity in Boulder. The area is prone to flooding and the park along the creek educates, helps maintain water quality and has flood control mechanisms. Stroll along at any one of the entry points and enjoy people watching, biking, fishing, wading, tubing etc. There are great little places to pause and enjoy... More

Borrowed bikes from our hotel (there's also a great bike-sharing system you can use), and joined the bike path at about 9th street. First we biked west to the foot of the foothills, then turned around and biked about 5 miles east. The paths are easy to navigate with good signage. And most of the underpasses were open, so we...

We walked basically the entire path out and back- around 12 miles in all. Beautiful trail, even though we sure got wet. But the good news- very few people on path due to the weather. Most bikes gave us warning they were behind, although a few did not. I'd like more info on where the path actually begins and ends... More

Feeling hot? Lots of places to stop and put your feet in the stream. Shaded areas and seating along the creek. You might even meet some locals who will tell you their story about life in Boulder. You can walk or ride and visit the farmer's market on Saturdays if you time it right.

I started from the shopping mecca of Pearl Street while my wife built the Boulder economy a bit more. Walk west and at Pioneer Park a series of interesting historical signs tell the visitor about Boulder history. Just continue on up the paved path along the river, across bridges and along the highway. The path soon leaves the road and... More
