The Boulder Creek path is an easy, entertaining walk. Campus is a good place to start, to go in either direction. Head east, out towards the plains, and witness the beauty of open space, and the creek that has been in Boulder Valley for a very long time. Head west, and walk through Eben Fine Park, my favorite. The Eben... More

We rented tubes from a local company for the day. We arrived early, and the park and creek were fairly empty. The water was freezing at first, but did warm up a bit as the day went on. The path that takes you to the entry point(s) was easy to follow. Unlike other reviews, we did not encounter any of... More

This is perhaps one of the best paths in the world for outdoors people. It is extremely accessible, wide and scenic.

This walk covers several miles and is excellent for walking, biking, skate boarding, etc. It meanders through a forested strip along Boulder Creek through the middle of Boulder from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to past Foothills Parkway.

It was very nice to have a place to walk and see all the beauty of Colorado without having to travel hours outside of the city to be in nature.

The creek path is a main part of the interconnected trail around Boulder. There is almost no need to ever cross a street, whether on bike, walking, or any other activity.

I was in town for work and enjoyed having the opportunity to do a long run along this path. It is filled with beautiful scenery and is a well taken care of route. Also from being from out of town I felt safe running by myself.

I started walking this path with my fishing pole and stopping along the way to try and catch a trout. I really could have asked for more in the middle of a city.

The Creek Path goes for a long, long, way, and with very few exceptions, give a cyclist or a walker nonstop, no- traffic paths via its underpasses of the roads. There is good people- watching along the way in the summer. The creek's sounds are of course a welcome relief from revving engines.

You can park at the library for a fee. Saturday's is nice to do a stroll at the Farmers Market. Enjoy tea at Dushanbe and visit the Contemporary Museum. It gets crowded but everyone seems to be happy and enjoying themselves.
