Since the Rocky Mountains are the region’s defining feature, the quintessential Colorado activities at The Broadmoor take place on the slopes. During the warmer months, that means hiking and rock climbing. Access to trails that wind through waterfalls, canyon faces galore and forests is a breeze from the Five-Star hotel; just hop on the complimentary shuttle up to Cheyenne Canyon. Novice climbers can (and should) book guided excursions at the concierge desk. There you can also reserve horseback rides at the Stables at The Broadmoor. Horseback riding is another quintessential Colorado activity; after all, this state was built on the backs of horses.
From its inception, The Broadmoor has been a magnificent representation of what Colorado has to offer. A few of the quintessential Colorado activities at or near The Broadmoor include hiking, biking, fly fishing, rock climbing, hot air ballooning and horseback riding.
