“Wonderful!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Boulder does such an amazing job with their bike paths. This path itself is several miles long but even more interestingly, there are many side paths that can get you anywhere you need to go in Boulder or beyond. In the summer the path can get a little crowded with over zealous bikers that may be bothersome to the more casual biker or even runner like me but just stick to your lane and turn the tunes up!

“Favorite of Ours”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This is such a lovely bike path. We start on a trailhead just west of Cherryvale and Baseline. The trail stays by the creek winding through downtown Boulder and up the Boulder Canyon a couple of miles. The mountains are always in the background and you go by CU Boulder as well. You also pass a couple of parks. It's a fave!

“Watch where you walk!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

This is a great place to ride your bike, use in line skates or just take a walk. The path runs beside the creek with many opportunities to stop by the rushing water and relax. If walking, try to stay to the right side of the trail as bikes will be passing you on the left. Enjoy!

“In town Delight”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have not been on the path since summer........BUT it is always a joy to "get away" and stroll the path from the main library to Eben Fine Park and beyond.

It's also a KOOL place on summer weekends, when families come early ,spend the day and BBQ.

There are times we take a break......sit by the creek and watch the world go by. Those tubing have an enjoyable time too.

Another gem in Boulder.

“A Good Stroll”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Boulder Creek Path is a pretty good place for a stroll. One good point about it is that if you're not up to walking the whole path, there are ample places to park and just walk a short stretch.

Boulder Creek is a pretty creek wherever you pick to walk it. There are a couple of places where you can stand below the water level and look through glass, sometimes to see the occasional visiting trout.

One caveat: keep your eyes and ears open for bicyclists--some of them zip right past you, and not all of them advise you that they are coming.
