Great little hike with our dog. It’s a bit muddy right now but our dog didn’t seem to mind. Lots of other dogs on this trail for him to sniff and play with.

Nice area, moderately heavy traffic, disappointing that the app didn’t mention that your dog has to have the Boulder Voice command tag to be off lead

For bike riding this trail is a bit dull

Love this trail at any other time of the year, except right now it is so buggy! Tons of mosquitos and we forgot bug spray. It’s a beautiful trail for sunset or a short hike, but not enjoyable this time of year when the mosquitoes are swarming you. Great trail to take your dog off leash though.

It was so buggy we only lasted a few minutes. We were covered in bites and bugs were swarming our dog immediately.

Just hiked out and back (without doing the small off loop). Tons of mosquitos right now. Would recommend a bunch of bug spray. I was eaten alive. Super easy trail to do. Flat the whole way with great views of the mountains in the distance. I love stopping and letting my dogs take a dip in the stream (didn't this time because of the mosquitos and incoming rain). Dogs off leash on the dirt path but on leash on the paved path.

Hiked 6/16/19. Nice, flat trail. Lightening and heavy rain started up so we turned around just after leaving the creek side. Dog friendly!!

Fun to cruise through on a mountain bike. Perfectly smooth trail most of the time.

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.
