Bear Creek Path Description

The Bear Creek Path begins just south of the University of Colorado Research Park and winds its way southwest to the Martin Acres community. The trail is paved and generally flat, although there is a steady incline up to S. Broadway Street at the south end of the trail.

You'll travel through some shaded and some open areas on a route that connects southeast Boulder neighborhoods, parks and Creekside Elementary School. Park East, at the north end of the trail, and Martin Park, on the south side, offer playgrounds, picnic tables and recreation areas.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Martin Park (S. 36th Street and Eastman Avenue) at the south end of the trail, or the University of Colorado Research Park at the north end of the trail.
