Beautiful area to people watch, skateboard, walk, run but do beware of a lot of homeless people. Also, we smelled a lot of marijuana in the area even though it’s an open area that’s very well maintained.

Lovely gently path up and down the Boulder Creek. We cycled and thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of hire places in Boulder - we used university bikes on 9th.

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
