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.

Enjoy nature in Boulder before tackling the more difficult hiking trails. After breakfast we choose to walk back to our hotel before hiking the Flat Iron trails.

Really enjoyed walking to town on the Boulder Creek Path, which sure enough goes right next to the Boulder Creek. So many interesting parks and activities along the path. Location(s) are well-labelled. Full of activity and people. Great path!

The sound of the water and the dapple of light under huge shade trees that turn golden in the fall. Leisurely and easy walk along the paved path. Can pick up, veer off, pick back up again in hot spots like Pearl St mall, the...More

Love this path. Well kept, beautiful setting, and goes all the way to the A-Lodge at Fourmile Creek!

An excellent place to run while in Boulder. You'll see all paces including the Buffs XC team, walkers and bikers. Very scenic when you start climbing into the mountains. Has shade and is uphill away from town. Very accessible.

You can pick up this path anywhere in the central Boulder community. It is cooler on the path, as it is typically shaded and follows the Boulder Creek. The path is multi-use with cycling, roller-blading, skate boarding activity in addition to walking and running. Need...More

Concrete with bikes zooming by. Some courteous and others whipping around without warning. We tried the dirt part and walked by homeless sleeping in the grass. The view of the mountains was nice but they were far off and did not help dealing with the...More

Morning stroll on the beautiful Multi-use Boulder Creek Path was very good. On the way saw prairie dogs and rabbit. Vegetation is nice too. Share the path with bicyclists and runners.

Bike hike run along a creek to various mountain sites. Runs from town to Boulder adventure lodge and I think stops there. Along the road on some parts so can hear cars. Still pleasant

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

Bike use it, so I would think scooters would be okay unless they are motorized.
