This paved path is in downtown Boulder a few blocks from the Pearl Street Mall. There is pay parking on the street across from the Russian Tea Room and Boulder Contemporary Art Museum. While we enjoyed our walk we did find the bike's flying by us at high speed a bit disconcerting.

I was in Boulder for a training and after having dinner at a restaurant I decided to go back walking. Someone suggested I took the Boulder creek. Had no idea that existed. To my surprise it was like being in nature within the cement. Beautiful, great to walk all the way to the mountain.

What is great about the Creek Path is you can make your journey as long or short as you want and the Creek can be mesmerizing to watch. Path can get quite busy with walkers, runners, and bikers, so you do need to be aware of traffic. In general, it is a good idea to be aware of your surroundings... More

We found this on TripAdvisor and spent 2 hours strolling up and down this path. The creek and the surrounding greenery were so peaceful -- you could hardly tell you were steps away from downtown. The showpiece on the path is the Public Library, a beautiful facility with a health-conscious cafe overlooking the creek. This was definitely a great way... More

What a great path! The scenery along the river and mountain is gorgeous. Most of it out by the river is shaded. Lots of open areas for children to play. Two men were fly fishing in the stream. Seems to be THE place for locals who like to exercise. Runners, walkers, bikers, etc. Beautiful

The Boulder creek path allows you to feel in the wilderness in the middle of town. It's clear waters running along the walking or cycling path are chilly and refreshing. It is long enough to enjoy for a long time.

A local recommended to us to park at the Boulder Public Library and take a walk on the Boulder Creek Path. What a great experience! The bicyclists stayed off the dirt path and allowed us a leisurely stroll, watching the tubers float down the Boulder Creek. Highly recommended!
