The pathway is lovely, quiet, relaxing, OR loud, dangerous and hectic. It's the split between people who just want to take a pleasant stroll in the sunshine, watch people and enjoy the scenery and the bicyclists who seem to be timing themselves for their next...More

You can get almost any where! Wide, well maintained and beautiful! Beware of the seasoned bike commuters. They drive so fast and have so much passion about getting to their destination it has been fatal to less experienced bikers in the past.

The path goes for miles, part of it onto a mountain and part through the town. It has a lot of beautiful views of the creek, frozen waterfalls, bridges, little parks, seating areas, etc. We rented bikes at our hotel and that was the best...More

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.
