Very easy walk on either paved or gravel path. Many dogs with most on leashes. Easy to take jogging or all terrain stroller on the path. Several bikers, but most called out that they were coming up behind you. Some good views of the mountains and Flatirons.

Beautiful but beware-TAKE BUG SPRAY!!! I got attacked by biting flies so badly that I had to turn around and run back about 1 mile into it and I'm covered in bites now.

This is a fun trail to go on with kids. No climbing involved and is very easy relaxed hike. We found wild garlic growing and this trail is awesome if you start at the North Boulder Recreation Center and circle all the way back. There are places to dip your toes in the water but we need to come when the sun is up otherwise it can get cold

Very pretty. Easy hike. Would be very enjoyable with a bike. Lots of pretty flowers. Bring bug spray. Lots of mosquitos and biting bugs. I was not prepared.

This is a nice flat trail, good for an easy-going hike or trail run. Some of the nice features of this trail include easy access to South Boulder Creek along most of the trail, views of the Flatirons, and wildflowers in the summer. On a Sunday afternoon on a nice summer day, it wasn't terribly crowded. A couple of remarks about the trail's description - I would say that it doesn't really feature a lake, the Baseline Reservoir is not easily viewed, although there are a couple of small ponds near the East Boulder Community Center. Secondly, this is mostly an out and back trail, the only loop is around the Community Center ponds.

I've only used the bike trails but it's a good time. If I'm bored on a Saturday afternoon it's a good way to work up a sweat by biking on the trails.

This is a really nice trail if you're looking for a relaxing walk or hike. Paved and gravel paths are often used by cyclists, but a dirt path runs along a creek for walkers and trail runners. It's a popular trail for families with young kids or people with their dogs, but it never feels overly crowded. In spite of being on the east side of town, you still get nice views of the Flatirons along the way. The parking lot on Baseline is pretty small and fills up quickly, but if you park at the East Boulder Rec/Community Center, you can connect to the Bobolink Trail.

Tons of off leash dogs. Pretty trail otherwise.

Lovely trail, but the mosquitos are aggressive. There were times when I had more than 10 swarming around me!

This is a nice path to take my toddler. The gravel path along the creek still allows for an all terrain stroller easily. There are nice views through the trees.

Great trail! Has a beautiful view of the flatirons and a creek running along the entire trail for your dogs to cool off on a hot day. They have trash stations through out the trail so you’re not carrying poop bags for too long. Very dog friendly!! My only complaint is that this parking lot is pretty small and space fills up quick. I go in the middle of the day through the week. If there’s no space there’s always dry creek trail a few minutes up the road!

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.

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.
