Beautiful. I went on a Saturday morning and was early enough (9 or 10ish?) that it wasn't too crowded yet. There's a path for bikes and one for walking, which I took. A couple of homeless people, but not many and as a single woman walking alone I felt safe. From there I went to the farmer's market, which was great! Then on to Pearl street. By then it was crowded and too busy for me. Highly recommend! Next time I'd want to rent a bike and ride the entire path.

Boulder is a chic town at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The Boulder Creek Multi-Use path is great for a walk, bike ride…or whatever means you prefer. Just a couple blocks from Boulder Creek is Pearl Street and the Pearl Street Mall where you will find an abundant selection of restaurants and shops…or a good place to sit and people-watch. Our stay was short so we enjoyed only a small sampling of all Boulder has to offer.

Great for running while in Boulder with multiple entry points leading to Boulder River Canyon. Lots of bikers, however, to contend with and there has been a noticeable proliferation of homeless camps on the trail. Otherwise, it's a clean, well laid out concrete and asphalt trail that is generally wooded alongside the creek and punches into the city every now and then for access and goes underneath major roads for continuity.

We rode along the path on bikes and enjoyed the wonderful creek views and parks along the path. Easily rideable and walkable even for those in less than great physical shape.

even in the winter, this trail path is amazing. very clean river from melting ice. lots of people running here. too bad when I came here, some of the path is closed (don't know why). I must stopped at even g fine park, can't go up because of the closed sign.

This was a really nice, mostly paved walk along Boulder Creek. It's an easy stroll, not many rocks or other obstacles to step over. If it's summer and sunny, bring water 'cuz there's not a lot of shade.

The path is THE way to get around Boulder and head up the canyon. So well designed and maintained. The only issue are the number of homeless camps.

A lovely path for biking, walking or jogging. My wife and I were told about this by a local and we took a great long ride. Lovely!

for the outdoors lovers, the Boulder Creek trail is amazing. A 10+ mile paved trail (one way). The entire path is paved and extends far west into the mountain pass, and then east out to a series of parks. It has both bike lanes and walking/running.
Going west (from 26th street), the trail has a very steady 350 foot elevation gain all the way to the end (where the trail goes under 119 and becomes a dirt trail).

Please note: this path is well used by locals and CU Boulder students. That being said, homeless people abound, especially under the street bridges and in a few homeless parks (in tents) in the western area.
The path is plowed in the winter (and before 0700).
