This area of north Boulder is a great place to train for long races. It is no coincidence that you will see many elite runners out there most every morning and the Boulder Backroads Marathon is held in the same area. Other than the Reservoir Loop, there are many connecting soft gravel paths, dirt roads and quiet paved roads allowing one to easily get in a 20-24 mile run without hardly seeing the same place twice. The best stragegy is to find a county map and get in your car or bike to plot out your run.
Great advice from Sean. Just wanted to mention that the conventional 5.5 miles for this loop is slightly overstated. My GPS says 5.3 ... in case anyone cares.
