The Boulder Creek Path is an easy 5.5-mile (or 9 kilometer) paved urban walking and biking trail running east to west alongside Boulder Creek through Boulder, Colorado.
At its eastern end, Boulder Creek Path starts near 55th and Pearl Parkway, and runs to Boulder Canyon at its western end, with plenty of trail access points on the route.
Along the way, the trail passes the CU Boulder Campus, Scott Carpenter Park, Millennium Harvest House hotel, downtown Boulder’s Central Park, and Eben G Fine Park, and ultimately connects to the Boulder Canyon Trail.
The nearest waterfall to Boulder, Colorado, is Boulder Falls, located nine miles west of the city, on Boulder Canyon Drive (Highway 119) between Boulder and Nederland.
Open May through October, the 70-foot waterfall in Boulder Canyon is reached on foot along an easy, short trail starting opposite the roadside pull-in parking area.
