If you're looking for the Physical Path, use:

<cfset variables.templateFolder = ListDeleteAt(cgi.cf_template_path,listlen(cgi.cf_template_path,'\'),'\')>
(change shashes if on non-Windows box)

If you're looking for the web path, use:
<cfset variables.urlDirectory = ListDeleteAt(cgi.script_name,listlen(cgi.script_name,'/'),'/')>

Ooops, didn't see the title.  If you're using GetCurrentTemplatePath(), then do:

<cfset variables.templateFolder = ListDeleteAt(GetCurrentTemplatePath(),listlen(GetCurrentTemplatePath(),'\'),'\')>

Not sure if this is would work the same, but in BlueDragon, we have a cgi var called cgi.cf_template_path
If you have a cgi var that is the same, the code below would work with the var new_path being the path you want


<cfset page_name = ListLast("#cgi.cf_template_path#", "\")>
<cfset temp_len = len(#page_name#)>
<cfset whole_len = len(#cgi.cf_template_path#)>
<cfset new_len = whole_len - temp_len>
<cfset new_path = left(#cgi.cf_template_path#, #new_len#)>

If you looking to just return the path to the current templates directory I always just use #GetDirectoryFromPath(GetCurrentTemplatePath())# Seems a whole lot easier to me.
