A very nice path along the running creek. As you get to the far West it is no longer paved but very nice on all the parts I ran on. A lot of people out enjoying the sound of the water and the path.

We walked some of this trail on a Sunday afternoon. It is beautifully maintained, with lovely scenery (an adjacent creek, the mountains in the background). You also get a feel for the Boulder lifestyle, as the path is used by all, for walking, biking, jogging etc. The path goes under the intersections so that is a nice feature too.

Especially near the Boulder Library,along Boulder Creek, there are so many transients, a number of whom are, well, less than friendly, that the whole Boulder creek-walk experience is sadly reduced. Lived here for 72 years, sad to see the Creek Path so damage by presence of these street/homeless people. And note - beware speeding bicycles. They don't always tell you... More

This path runs through Boulder along Boulder Creek. There are a lot bike riders here and they go very fast and are very aggressive. Also in certain parts there are lots of homeless people so be careful at night.

Running all the way from east Boulder through Boulder skirting the CU Campus and downtown through parks and up Boulder Canyon. Always full of people, bikes,and other forms of transportation from strollers to skate boards and long boards. Nice to be by rushing mountain stream. A little marred at present by hangover from last years flood and the influx of... More

I used to live off the creek path. Great place for a run... The path goes for miles and links with other paths.

This well maintained path (sidewalk) follows the Boulder Creek and is used by pedestrians, bicyclists, skateboarders, roller skating etc. A great way to experience the locals. Lots of places along the path to stop and play in the water and tables for picnics. Used year round by locals!

So pretty and shady and quiet. I've lived in Boulder for 40 years and I make a point if doing this walk at least once a year.
