In many ways, the Boulder Creek Path is more "Boulder" than the Pearl Street Mall. Bicyclists, dog walkers, runners, skateboarders, and pedestrians of all stripes enjoy this classic Boulder destination. The stretch between 9th Street and 28th is the busiest; if you want to want to avoid crowds, wander through the eastern section. There are several B-cycle stations near the... More

We use this path constantly especially in the summer. It connects any place in Boulder including restaurants and shopping and parks. Most times you never have to cross a road as it goes under the many bridges. Only downside is that it is so popular that you have to be careful not to run into walkers or bikers in the... More

A great place if you want to get clipped by a bike rider in a ridiculous costume thinking he is Lange Armsrong. If you live outside of the "Boulder Bubble" skip it.

Right near the Pearl Street mall. Bring bread to feed the ducks and you will be very popular! Easy walk and also nice for biking.

Boulder does such an amazing job with their bike paths. This path itself is several miles long but even more interestingly, there are many side paths that can get you anywhere you need to go in Boulder or beyond. In the summer the path can get a little crowded with over zealous bikers that may be bothersome to the more... More

This is such a lovely bike path. We start on a trailhead just west of Cherryvale and Baseline. The trail stays by the creek winding through downtown Boulder and up the Boulder Canyon a couple of miles. The mountains are always in the background and you go by CU Boulder as well. You also pass a couple of parks. It's... More

This is a great place to ride your bike, use in line skates or just take a walk. The path runs beside the creek with many opportunities to stop by the rushing water and relax. If walking, try to stay to the right side of the trail as bikes will be passing you on the left. Enjoy!

Have not been on the path since summer........BUT it is always a joy to "get away" and stroll the path from the main library to Eben Fine Park and beyond. It's also a KOOL place on summer weekends, when families come early ,spend the day and BBQ. There are times we take a break......sit by the creek and watch the... More

Boulder Creek Path is a pretty good place for a stroll. One good point about it is that if you're not up to walking the whole path, there are ample places to park and just walk a short stretch. Boulder Creek is a pretty creek wherever you pick to walk it. There are a couple of places where you can... More
