This paved 7.5-mile path for walkers, bikers and skaters leads from Boulder proper into the mountains, winding its way along Boulder Creek, a large park and a playground.

This path is clean and enjoyable, a pleasant nature walk in the city. Loved that it led directly to the Boulder Farmer's Market on Saturday!

Running, cycling, walking dogs, just walking. The creek is non-stop busy with people enjoying summer. You can bike or run for miles all whilst following the meandering creek. Plenty of B Bike stations around the creek so you could spend some time here. People are...More

The Boulder Creek Path is a bit...eclectic. You can travel west and encounter some of the most breathtaking views ever. You can head into the more populated area and come across bikers, people walking, roller skating and long boarding. Some areas along the path will...More

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
