Black Forest Colorado

Local Real Estate Guide

Black Forest is an area located just North (and slightly East) of Colorado Springs . This community is appealing to homeowners looking for privacy and land tucked away in the beautiful ponderosa pine trees of the area. Black Forest is not a city or a neighborhood. It is an area defined by the trees that darken the terrain, offering a surreal landscape. This area is very popular for homeowners looking for acreage in El Paso County.

Not all of Black Forest is surrounded by trees. Notice how the two aerial photos in the slide show look very different. Both of those photos were taken from the Black Forest area.
