Simple flat trail along a creek. Near busy roads so you can hear car noise, but a pretty nice easy getaway for a nearly in-town walk.

Very well maintained easy trail. As we share the trail with bikes at certain points, it would be really helpful if a bicyclist can yell heads-up so that we can get out of its way.

Was a very nice level walk with beautiful views.

Beautiful local trail, easily accessible. You're not hiking in the mountains, but you have pretty views of a few.

Great wide open paths along the creek with beautiful openings in the trees along the water revealing flatirons in the background.

This is a great hike to do with the kiddos. Views of the flatirons, a flat, paved path, places to play along the creek.

Loved it here! So many different trails to explore. Peaceful and beautiful.

Great place for the kids to play in water, went on a tuesday so not busy. Lots of mosquitoes!!! Must take bug spray!!

Super easy and very flat. Great for runners and beginners.

Mostly paved with easy gravel areas, a beautiful view and not too busy for a Saturday (on CU graduation and Mother's Day weekend, no less!) A lot of options for directions to take to make it longer or shorter.

This trail outline takes you around a community center and an off-leash dog park so if you have a dog that's a nice option but otherwise not much to this.

Great trail for nature lovers and birdwatchers, as it's on a creek and has a lot of biodiversity. It's easy as can be, so not necessarily for walkers wanting to huff and puff ~ but if you enjoy gurgling creeks, a huge array of birds (many flyovers from the lake nearby as well, and meadowlarks in the field), frogs aplenty, and interesting plants and trees, you'll enjoy this easy stroll. Do watch out for biting bugs in the summer though!

picture above is of a different creek in Boulder. I live really near this trail, so I walk it fairly often - there are a couple of pretty parts, and the creek access is nice in summer, but a lot of the path runs next to a fairly loud road, which isn't great. they recently fixed the bridge, so you don't have to walk along the shoulder anymore. not the best trail in/around Boulder, but that's a really high bar! I like South Boulder Creek for a longer afternoon walk in the spring/summer/early fall.

Open trail with great vistas of the Front Range. Lot of sun so wear sun block.
Beware of rattlers in the area.
Parking costs $5 for those who don't have Boulder permit.

Not a bad trail. I went to the trail on a September afternoon. I accidentally wandered off on to the South Boulder Creek Trail for a few miles before realizing I didn't take the turn to the west for the Bobolink Trail. Ended up doing about 7 miles by the time I returned. It was a pleasant walk. Semi-near 36, so you get some car noise, but nice enough without having to go too far out of town. LOTS of dogs when I went and portions of the trail are leash-free areas where the dogs will roam free.
