I really enjoy going for a little ride on the creek path to the movies or where ever and it is the perfect "street" for bikes as it takes you from Eben G fine all the way out past Valmont. Very scenic. Many people walk and run here as it is nice and shaded right next to the creek. Watch... More

This is a nice place to walk and watch people. It's especially fun in the summer to watch kids tubing on the water. Good place to walk if you're coming from low elevation for a first walk.

Did some hiking and stopped and took a cool dip as well. Fantastic scenery and a lovely body of water cascading down to Boulder. A must for any visitor.

Being from a humid lowland state riding the Boulder Creek Path from Central Park to the west end was an exhilarating dash along side the rushing ice water creek! This is about a 4.5 mile round trip that can be run on just about any type of bike. The ride down is high speed so check your tires and brakes... More

We had a fantastic time tubing down the Boulder Creek and then carrying our tubes back up along the Boulder Creek Path. Several great places to put in and take out your tubes depending on how far you would like to float. Several rapids along the way. We had an 8 and 11 year old with us and they had... More

The Boulder creek path is a great path to walk, hike, bike, etc. and has great scenery. You can choose to go a short distance or for many miles based on your preferences.

If you like a quiet walk, sitting by the water, or reading a good book in the shade there are places along Boulder Creek during the week that are excellent spots. Keep in mind this path goes a way up into Boulder Canyon, so you can get away from the crowd. If you're more adventurous go up to the Betasso... More

If you really want a relaxing walk or bike ride this is the place for you. So peaceful and relaxing if you want it to be. We also saw plenty of tubers and kayakers on the Creek... the water was way too cold for me! Lots of play areas for kids... a big sandbox and a playground. My husband and... More

Now that we have a house here, we have spent a lot of time on the Boulder Creek Path, as well as some of the connecting trails such as Goose Creek and Bear Creek Path. There is rushing water and gentle streams. Lots of wildflowers. You might see deer, prairie dogs, skateboarders, runners, walkers, the Boulder County Farmer's Market on... More
