Within the last month there have been multiple issues with coyotes along an east section of the Boulder Creek path. On any typical roadway coyote issues resolve themselves as the cars and trucks will eliminate the issue with in seconds of contact but new transportation arteries like the Boulder Creek path does not have that self correcting characteristic, users of these pathways are vulnerable to these wildlife encroachments. Added to these issues many of our multi use paths are located in or nearby protected open space. Continued issues like these will make many bike commuters who are on the fence about attempting to use this pathway as a means to commute will easily make the choice to drive instead.
