It's good for walking and biking too. Fairly well maintained. Some beggers, not overly so. Creek can flood the road some of the time.

Well maintained. Nice small bridges. From one side of the creek to the other. Beautiful views from start to end.

When I went to college in Boulder, the city would take snowplows to the BCP before they cleared most roads. That prioritization still holds as they redevelop and energize the downtown areas of the path following recent floods. The path will continue to be the...More

This path is a wonderful addition to the boulder moveability scene. It allows for anything from a leisurely walk at lunch to a rollerblade commute or exercise session. It traverses town in a scenic but efficient manner without all the traffic and congestion of the...More

Fantastic path with great scenery that stretches for miles. You would have to go for an out and back run but still worth it.

A warning about this walk--bicycles (and roller blades) flying past, on both sides, sometimes with a cordial "on your left!" and sometimes whisking by touching my jacket, and making an otherwise calm creekside stroll into an exercise in sensing-what's-coming-next. I have observed this to be...More

We took bikes on the path- just for an hour on a Friday afternoon. Saw a combo of commuters, serious bikers and joggers and we all shared the path quite nicely.

This remarkable pathway is a main thoroughfare for all Boulder activity. Busy, busy.....it takes one right into and beyond downtown and all the way to the north in the other direction....

Are there water fountains along the creek path?

I only recall one fountain on the path. Most people carry their own bottled water or fill up a bottle with water. This is important if you're coming from low altitude. The climate is semi-arid and the altitude around 6,000... More
Hi! Thinking of taking the path for a couple of hours tomorrow afternoon (3/7). I'm guessing that snow has been cleared... Do you think kids (8-13) on scooters is OK? Thanks for any info!

Bike use it, so I would think scooters would be okay unless they are motorized.
