Beautiful, picturesque run into the mountains. Very well maintained. You run along the creek all the way up the mountains. We saw deer and lots of beautiful scenery.

Boulder has a number of Creek Paths that are paved and wide enough for bikes and pedestrians. Boulder Creek Path extends from West to East, much of it is shady and grade is easy.

Snarfs, and the other locations are great Boulder Places to see and visit. You can't get a better sandwich than Snarfs. Breakfast at Snooze is the best. Very unique items. Just don't like the lines.

Can be overly crowed on weekends in the downtown area. Also the aroma of the bums camping and crapping along the river's edge can be disconcerting. Watch out for the speeding bikes or the slow walkers as well. City fails to address the increasing issues...More

Took this path west to its end from about sixth street, then the other direction for a few miles and back. The path is in good condition, traffic was light for a Sunday, and the grade is fairly constant and not difficult.

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!

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.
