This paved 7.5-mile path for walkers, bikers and skaters leads from Boulder proper into the mountains, winding its way along Boulder Creek, a large park and a playground.

We parked near the path, so we walked to Folsom Stadium and I enjoyed the walk by light of a bright full moon.

We were able to rent bikes and ride down Boulder Creek Path along a lovely little river. It was a beautiful parkway and an easy bike ride with bridges and lots of green space.

This is a well-maintained path that follows Boulder Creek. It's paved from Boulder up to where it enters Boulder Canyon. There is a public restroom where to path passes a park area along with places to picnic and for kids to play.

I only recall one fountain on the path. Most people carry their own bottled water or fill up a bottle with water. This is important if you're coming from low altitude. The climate is semi-arid and the altitude around 6,000... More
Hi! Thinking of taking the path for a couple of hours tomorrow afternoon (3/7). I'm guessing that snow has been cleared... Do you think kids (8-13) on scooters is OK? Thanks for any info!
