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

Unlike so many paths that cater to cyclists, this one offers a dirt path for walkers that is beautiful, protected from aggressive bicyclists, and kind to the joints. Bravo, Boulder!

Loved this stop! Free park and free parking. Bring your own picnic and water shoes. Beautiful - water is cold. Great for families!

This path is clean and enjoyable, a pleasant nature walk in the city. Loved that it led directly to the Boulder Farmer's Market on Saturday!

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.
