If you are from the area you already know it. If visiting, it is great for running, walking and biking. No matter if you are staying downtown, or East Boulder there are many good access points and several other paths and trails to explore

I set a personal goal 3 years ago. I walked 10 miles everyday for 57 straight days. I'd get up just before sunrise and off I'd go when first light. It would take me 3.5 -4 hours. I felt safe all the time. I was into my challenge 13 days when the floods came Sept 2013. I still continued and... More

This scenic walk was worth the trip, even if it's the only thing we got to do. We walked it all the way to the end. It took us about 2 hours, but we were stopping to take photos quite a bit. We loved it!

Basically the is a nice little path through town. However, if you go towards the mountains it will get much better!

This path is shared by cyclists, walkers, dogs, strollers, and the list goes on. We tubed down the creek once in August. I'm not sure I'd recommend it for kids, and if you do it use a helmet. It's more dangerous than you'd think, but crazy fun.

Only a few blocks South of the popular Pearl Street Mall in Boulder you can enjoy a very pleasant stroll along the bank of the Boulder Creek. You may see people tubing down the creek or kayaking. Going West toward the mountains you will walk through a park under trees and pass the fishing pond for children. A delightful way... More

This was a walk I did on my own in cold weather and it was just great. There is a path the whole way, while there are some twists and turns nothing too onerous and the scenery and walk was spectacular. I came out near Pearl Street Mall and walked back to my apartment from there. While I wouldn't call... More

A lot of people may not realize that if you walk West a short distance past downtown you'll get to a nice park. From there continue West and you're in Boulder Canyon just West of town. Another thing- people think the path mostly borders Canyon St in town. Actually, the path cuts South near the library and by 23rd or... More
