I walked towards the mountains away from Boulder, along the riverside; there are walking and bike paths side by side and while I had to be careful of the bikes, the walk was calm and peaceful. The views of the mountains were beautiful, especially as...More

This path system is outstanding... worth renting a good bike if you don't have one. Beautiful along the creek , and it just goes on and on and very easy.

As city paths go, this one is pretty nice. It connects various points of interest across the city of Boulder, and does so along a pleasant, often wooded creek. It can get rather congested.

The creek path is long, well maintained, and offers a beautiful way to get to where you're going without dealing with traffic. It's perfect for biking, running, rollerblading, walking, etc., although it can also get a little congested with non-car traffic (lots of people, bikes,...More

We rode bikes all along the Boulder Creek Path! There was a slight detour due to upgrading the path, but was very easy to follow and continue on. The scenery is crazy beautiful! The creek is amazing, the bridges are pretty, the trees along the...More

If you can find reason to use the Boulder Creek Path, do it! It is a lovely way to get around the city. It’s beautifully unrelated to the roads so you can enjoy the walk or the biking without concern of cars. It’s beautiful and...More
