Very nice city path that keeps you off the city streets. Goes adjacent to University of Colorado campus for a while. Lots of users. Gets prettier and less crowded as you head out of town west along the creek.

Boulder Creek Path runs almost the entire East - West length of Boulder and then on up into the foothills west of Boulder where you'll find unique views and rock formations. Rafting on the creek is limited because of the occasional dangers the creek presents but in all cases its a wonderful route to use when you want to attend... More

The park, stream and picnic areas are absolutely a jewel right in the city. The paved trail takes you right along the creek and several interesting areas to visit. It was a hot September day, but the trail offered deep shade and a cool breeze, Parking is ample. We were told that fishing was possible, but everywhere we looked there... More

This pathway was a bit busy but everyone was so friendly. It's a great way to see Boulder. It weaves through several other must see things (like the farmers market, an art museum, and the local library).

This paved trail is pure joy to walk or ride a bike on. It does everything a great trail is supposed to do - divert you away from dangerous intersections, follow a scenic route and lead you to places you wouldn't otherwise see (in a car). You can make it as challenging (there are many connecting routes to explore) or... More

This is a lovely, cool bike, walking path that goes through the center of town. A good place to get away from the hectic life. It can get busy ar times- so watch out for bikes going too fast.

The Boulder Creek is the place to be any day of the week and any time of year. It is tranquil, beautiful, full of wildlife and fly fishermen to keep you entertained. It is also a main thoroughfare for people floating down the creek on innner tubes. My son & I planned to walk a few blocks along the creek... More

The Boulder Creek path is a wonderful way to relax and take in some of the Natural beauty of Colorado. I especially love the segments near Eben G. Fine Park.

Boulder is amazing in that there are more bike paths than you can find or ride in a year! The creek path is wide, and safe for family. The views are great along the river and its fun to watch the tubers ride down the river as you ride. You can enter the creek path from many places.. just google... More
