If you really want a relaxing walk or bike ride this is the place for you. So peaceful and relaxing if you want it to be. We also saw plenty of tubers and kayakers on the Creek... the water was way too cold for me! Lots of play areas for kids... a big sandbox and a playground. My husband and... More

Now that we have a house here, we have spent a lot of time on the Boulder Creek Path, as well as some of the connecting trails such as Goose Creek and Bear Creek Path. There is rushing water and gentle streams. Lots of wildflowers. You might see deer, prairie dogs, skateboarders, runners, walkers, the Boulder County Farmer's Market on... More

I wish every city had such a pathway that incorporates nature into the city center. I have both walked and biked this path. The scenery changes around every turn, the people using the path are friendly and courteous, with both cyclists and walkers 'sharing the road.'

Miles and miles of paved bike trails so you can enjoy traffic free. There are many other paved bike trails that connect to this one. Boulder is a great place to bike.

This is an easy place to access along the water in Boulder. You'll see all sorts of people. The creek/river is beautiful, and for folks like us that like to be near water, it provides a nice break from the city traffic.

Great way to experience Boulder. Bike rentals are $8 for 24 hrs of 30mins bike rides. There are plenty of bike stations to cover the whole path.

This is a great hike for all family members. Beautiful scenery, good for pictures, just stay out of the way of bikers. The snow melt made for great water coming down the creek!

With over 12 miles of creek-side pavement running east to west through town, this is THE place for in-line skating in Boulder. The west path passes through the heart of downtown along beautiful Boulder Creek, while the eastern portion is less traveled and more peaceful. Excellent mountain views abound, with various off-shoots for exploring different areas. Park for free at... More
