A connector to Betasso from town in the summer, or a fun snow run in the winter!

Description

The Boulder Creek Path is part of an extensive paved path system in and around Boulder. It follows Boulder Creek all the way from the eastern reaches of Boulder to the base of Fourmile Canyon. After Eben G. Fine park heading west, the path starts climbing alongside Boulder Canyon Rd. (119) and quickly turns to dirt.

The path eventually dead-ends at the edge of Boulder Canyon Rd. and you can then run a short section of road to get to the Betasso Link Trail. In the summer, this provides a nice way to ride Betasso from town.

In the winter, the paved part of the path is maintained by the city and cleared of snow, but the dirt section is generally snow-covered. It's heavily trafficked by other trail users, so it's usually hard-packed snow that's run-able most times of year. A fun way to get out when all the other trails are snowy and off-limits!
