We walked basically the entire path out and back- around 12 miles in all. Beautiful trail, even though we sure got wet. But the good news- very few people on path due to the weather. Most bikes gave us warning they were behind, although a few did not. I'd like more info on where the path actually begins and ends... More

Feeling hot? Lots of places to stop and put your feet in the stream. Shaded areas and seating along the creek. You might even meet some locals who will tell you their story about life in Boulder. You can walk or ride and visit the farmer's market on Saturdays if you time it right.

I started from the shopping mecca of Pearl Street while my wife built the Boulder economy a bit more. Walk west and at Pioneer Park a series of interesting historical signs tell the visitor about Boulder history. Just continue on up the paved path along the river, across bridges and along the highway. The path soon leaves the road and... More

This is a very nice trail for running, biking and walking. When the river is high, areas of it are flooded, but still a very nice trail to use.

Great easy walking path near Pearl St. My brother and I walked the path while waiting to meet up with friends. The path is covered, paved and easy to walk for everyone. Being next to the running cool water on pretty warm day was refreshing.

The creek was close to our hotel so we were able to visit it several times. The last day we saw kayaks cruising down the rapid waters. It is relaxing and beautiful!

It is one of the most easy access mountains trails in Boulder. If you drive right down Canyon, you'll get there. you can drive all the way to Nederland and stop at the reservoir before hand for some peaceful relaxation by the water or you can park your car at the entrance of the path and walk around the mountain...

What a beautiful way to see Boulder! We borrowed bikes from our rental and biked through lovely woods, along the picturesque creek and behind the CU Campus. We parked the bikes on Pearl St, had a wonderful lunch and got back on our bikes to continue our journey. When we went in September, the path was not crowded. It was... More

Great area to visit but gets very crowded during the festival time. The water in the bridge area was almost at the top when we visited over Memorial Day.
