This hike is a walk and is heavily used by bikes. It is near the creak the entire time and would be great for a family.

Lovely stroll-especially good to acclimate to higher elevation if you're a California girl like me. Also, start from the opposite direction - from Eben G Fine Park. All Trails seems to want to start it from the end. Better to hike up first, then down, in my humble opinion.

Great to do with family, old and young. Lots of bikes, runners, and hikers getting in each other's way.

Beautiful trail close to Boulder. Nice for a quick walk or when you don't want anything too strenuous. The trail was pretty busy on a Saturday morning. The only problem was constantly having to move out of the way for bikers who weren't always courteous. Would use this trail again.

The trail is right near the road so it isn't like hiking up in the hills. The water was great to cool off in. Our dog enjoyed the water and cooling off. Lots of people on the trail and lots of people smoking weed and drinking. Most of the people were friendly along the trail. Some of the bike riders almost hit us on the trail even though we were to the right of the trail.
