This is a well-maintained path that follows Boulder Creek. It's paved from Boulder up to where it enters Boulder Canyon. There is a public restroom where to path passes a park area along with places to picnic and for kids to play.

I love Boulder so almost anything there is going to get a good rating from me! I love how everything is geared for the outdoors. This path provides a wonderful way for getting through town. It meanders and offers great views and easy access to many different areas. I've walked it in spring, summer and winter when covered in snow,... More

This multiuse path runs alongside Boulder Creek from East Boulder through the City of Boulder and into Boulder Canyon. The users include walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, moms pushing children in strollers, owners walking their dogs, and, in general, people of all ages. The trees and greenery along the path and creek provide a beautiful natural setting that enhances all of these... More

It's good for walking and biking too. Fairly well maintained. Some beggers, not overly so. Creek can flood the road some of the time.

Well maintained. Nice small bridges. From one side of the creek to the other. Beautiful views from start to end.

When I went to college in Boulder, the city would take snowplows to the BCP before they cleared most roads. That prioritization still holds as they redevelop and energize the downtown areas of the path following recent floods. The path will continue to be the place to run, bike, and enjoy.

This path is a wonderful addition to the boulder moveability scene. It allows for anything from a leisurely walk at lunch to a rollerblade commute or exercise session. It traverses town in a scenic but efficient manner without all the traffic and congestion of the roadway. A great asset for boulder.

Fantastic path with great scenery that stretches for miles. You would have to go for an out and back run but still worth it.

A warning about this walk--bicycles (and roller blades) flying past, on both sides, sometimes with a cordial "on your left!" and sometimes whisking by touching my jacket, and making an otherwise calm creekside stroll into an exercise in sensing-what's-coming-next. I have observed this to be a real problem with children that wander to right and left, many near misses. Having... More

We took bikes on the path- just for an hour on a Friday afternoon. Saw a combo of commuters, serious bikers and joggers and we all shared the path quite nicely.
