This walking/biking path is probably the best I've seen. It literally runs through Boulder and up into the foothills. The creek was running strong when we were there after a steady rain and light snow. We saw a few kayaks doing stunts with short equipment. They were doing flips and turns, much like a somersault. They drew a small crowd... More

Do not wast your time visiting Boulder in the summer. The city is full of Homeless. Very disappointed on my visit. It is a to bad that a beautiful city has turned so disgusting.

It is a great path that runs through the heart of Boulder. You really feel that you are in the wilds on part of it, can't imagine that 28th street is only feet away. If you are lucky you will see the Gravity Glue artist at work somewhere in the creek. A great way to clear your head.

Boulder Creek Path is awesome! Great place to ride your bike, walk, run, hand out and just do nothing near the water (when there is water ) Late spring people often tube from the head of Boulder Canyon. I usually ride my bike and check out local concerts at the Metropolitan Hotel. That place always has something going on outdoors... More

This super wide, well-kept trail is the perfect running path. I loved seeing the Flatirons in the background while taking in the sights during my run. I felt very safe running by myself. Wish my town had this!!

Not much to say, it's a little creak at the edge of the town. It's nicely kept and very clean. But I wouldn't go out of your way to visit this location as there are so many more marvellous things to do.

I was scared to take this path due to previous reviews saying the large number of bikers and homeless people on the trail...we really didn't see any of that. Maybe previous people went at night or during class times at the college. We were there around 10 in the morning and it was a wonderful walk to end our trip... More

There are many,many miles of trails to walk on around Boulder. This one runs along Boulder Creek and from a scenery standpoint is very nice. There are however, two major drawbacks. First, for walkers, the bicyclists are a clear and present danger. They go at high speed with little warning, and it is a miracle not more folks get hit.... More

There is a long path over most of Boulder Creek in Boulder. There are some places near downtown and the CU campus to exit and find a place to eat. The only trouble is the bikes. There are many students using the path as well as die hard cyclist out for their lunchtime workout, intent on getting somewhere fast. They... More

It's really lovely. A nice break from downtown. Watch the bikers though. One knocked down my rollerblading daughter and she broke her wrist
