Our regular walk

It's really lovely. A nice break from downtown. Watch the bikers though. One knocked down my rollerblading daughter and she broke her wrist

This is a wonderful Boulder experience, but there are a few things to be aware of. First, many of the bicyclists either are or think they are competitive racers. They will call out to you, "on your left", so it is better to stay alert, and not have ear buds in your ears. You will want to hear the cyclist,... More

This is one of the best things about Boulder and what makes Boulder such a great city to live in. You can zip from Boulder's west end to eastern edge on this path without hardly ever (I think maybe never) running into traffic, a distance of about 5 miles. You can get to so many things from here (from the... More

The multi-use Boulder Creek Path winds through the city and along the creek for well over 5 miles! You can do a hilly walk if you go west from Eben Fine Park, meander through the downtown area near Central Park or pass a series of ponds if you do the eastern end east of 55th St. It is a paved...

The Boulder Creek Path is a paved and easy trail, about 5.5 miles, that goes through the town of Boulder. We rented bikes for $20.00 per day from University Bikes, and rode along a beautiful creek. Our route was a car-free path that took us over quaint bridges, with views of mountains, trees, and wildlife--all while staying in town. There... More

For an authentic "Boulder" experience walk or bike this path during the day. The east end is less used and less "nice" but still ducks, creek and connects to other paths. In Scott Carpenter park you can sit on a bench with woods. Near the library you will see transients but safe during the day, and beautiful area. Past the... More

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.
