Enjoy America's #1 recreation town by bike. This path starts in the plains, goes through town and ends in the mountains. In a town that loves its trails and alternative forms of transportation, the Boulder Creek Path is the perfect defining landmark. This trail also symbolizes the state of Colorado since it start in the plains and ends in the mountains; it also runs through both rural and urban landscapes. This trail is also commonly known as the Boulder Bike Path and gets fairly heavy use by bicyclists, trail-runners, and walkers. If you prefer lots of social interaction, then you'll love this trail on weekends when it is quite busy, especially in the downtown Boulder area. If you prefer peace and quiet, stick to the eastern end of the trail, and try to make it on weekdays; although it gets quite a bit of use as a commuting trail all week long. This trail offers great access to parks, shopping, Boulder Creek activities, seasonal fairs, the library, a museum, Boulder Canyon, and the University of Colorado. It also makes a great trail for walking dogs, inline skating, recumbent riding, and people-watching.

Great run and scenery through Boulder. It’s lots of fun, but can be crowded. If you’re looking for an easy grade trail and are ok with mostly paved running, this is a fantastic option!

Really easy path through the city. Wheelchair, bike, and stroller friendly with some nice views of the creek.
