Sports and Activities to Try This Summer in Broomfield

The residents of RockVue Apartments are well known for their love of an active, outdoor lifestyle. If you’re ready to try something new in Broomfield this summer, there are a variety of exciting and energetic sports options to choose from. Keep reading to discover just a few of the unique opportunities for summer fun you can find just outside your apartment door.

Rock Climbing

Indoor rock climbing has quickly gained popularity in recent years. Rock climbing presents a new and exciting challenge for both beginners and those who already like traditional sports and physical activities. Furthermore, rock climbing builds both strength and endurance, making it an excellent way to keep your body in shape. You can choose to tackle rock climbing alone or take part in group climbing activities with friends. While special gear is needed for safety, this gear is often provided by rock climbing gyms or can be rented during your climb. The Broomfield and Denver areas boast a number of locations where you can participate in all levels of indoor rock climbing activities. Some of the most popular places to rock climb in and around Broomfield include the climbing wall at the Paul Derda Recreation Center, the Lakeshore Athletic Club, Rock’n & Jam’n, and the Paradise Rock Gym, Inc.

Mountain Biking

Even if you already enjoy biking though the paved streets of Broomfield, mountain biking in Colorado offers a completely new and exhilarating experience. Mountain bikes are built differently than traditional racing bicycles, making them easier to maneuver through rougher terrain. The Broomfield area is home to a vast network of cycling trails that will introduce you to both this amazing sport and the breathtaking natural landscapes just beyond your RockVue apartment community. Less experienced mountain bikers can enjoy a number of easy rides near Boulder, such as the Teller Lake Trail, East Boulder Trail, and the Marshall Mesa/Community Ditch Trail. More experienced mountain bikers may want to try biking through nearby Chimney Gulch, Eldorado Canyon State Park, or Golden Gate Canyon State Park.


Spelunking, or caving, refers to the exploration of caves as a hobby. Caving is also a great way to get your body moving and immerse yourself—literally—in some of nature’s most exquisite beauty. If you’re just starting out, you may find it beneficial to stop by a meeting held by a local caving group for expert advice to steer you in the right direction. There are two such groups near Broomfield: the Front Range Grotto caving group in Northglenn and the Colorado Grotto group in Denver. Both groups hold regular meetings to discuss caving and related activities; these groups also sponsor organized group caving trips. Some of the most popular caving destinations for groups such as these include Wind Cave National Park and Three Fingers Cave in Lincoln National Forest.
