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.

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.

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.

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.
