Beautify paved trail along Boulder Creek from downtown out to 55th street and beyond. Lots of traffic. Nice trout in the creek!

Anyone who visits Boulder must take the time to stroll the Boulder Creek Path. It's a park like oasis in the middle of a park like city.

The path is clean and well maintained, with seating areas, points of interest, and lanes clearly marked for safety (foot paths vs. bicycle paths).

The path is endless and beautiful. It meanders beside the creek and offers both concrete (for bikes or strollers) or dirt paths the whole distance. It is beautiful in either direction, take it up to the canyon, or all the way past town for miles....More

Got in a great 6 mile walk/hike (flat terrain) along the Boulder Creek - delightful and gorgeous views. Stopped a couple times to sit on large river rocks and meditate. Perfect morning activity.

This is not the first time we have walked along the creek, often from the Dushambe Tea House to the public library with the glassed in bridge over the creek. The walking path emphasizes the quality of life that has been advanced in Boulder.

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.
