Just finished walking the Boulder Creek Path for the first time, and wanted to share my great enthusiasm and delight. I started at the west end of Arapahoe, and turned off the path at the Teahouse since there was an amazing Farmer's Market there. (Many excellent treats, musical, personal, and edible.) This is one of the finest urban trails I've... More

If you're visiting Boulder for a few days, make sure to take a walk or run along the creek path. It goes all through down, up into the mountains for a bit and all the way east into the flat lands where the town ends. Well signposted and picturesque most of the way! However, stay away from it at night... More

What a treat to have this neat and easily accessible path so close to everything! There is so much going on and by this trail. Use your feet, bike, roller blades, bring you fishing rod or a picnic basket or just walk this path to people watch. I walked it all three days I was in Boulder and enjoyed it... More

Can be a little crowded sometimes. Very shady on a hot day and great for cooling off in the creek. Watch out for skaters and bikers if you are walking.

The path is well cemented and traverses through the canyon, some shade, some not! In and back, no loop. Very nice walking area or stroll area too! Bring food and water , for there are none on trail to purchase. You see climbers bikers,walkers, fisherman and fisherwomen! Very cool place for locals and visitors.

If you are stating on or near 28th Avenue, consider walking along the Boulder Creek path to the center of town, which takes about 15 or 20 minutes. The trees provide shade, there are suitable underpasses so you do not need to cross a road and you will not need to wrestle with parking when you get to the center... More

Great pedestrian or bike trip through town. I have walked with my dog along Boulder Creek, past Boulder High School and through neighborhoods and back to Central Park. I have fly-fished in the middle of town in Boulder Creek. The water is accessible for wading, tubing, fishing. A fun journey through the heart of town.

It is lovely to walk or cycle along the stream. There are picnic benches and lots of places to sit on big boulders.

I did this my first morning in Boulder - jet lag had me awake dry early! It's a lovely walk through tree covered creek bed. Lots of places to stop and admire the area. You can walk a short or long distance depending on time/fitness.
