BLACK FOREST, CO

Any discussion of Colorado Springs Real Estate is not complete without discussing Black Forest, CO.  Bordering the north end of Colorado Springs, just minutes from town, the Black Forest area encompasses 200,000 acres of unincorporated land in El Paso County.

The area offers a densely wooded pine forest with some open rolling grassland areas.  Characterized by mostly 5 acre and larger lots with elevations of 6500-7800 feet, many offer stunning views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range.  Black Forest, CO housing styles run the gamut from log cabins to contemporary homes and sprawling mansions.  This beautiful area was named by a German Immigrant who thought that the dark hue of the Ponderosa Pine very closely resembled The Black Forest in Germany. The area abounds in wildlife.  Many of the properties are zoned for horses.  Although the area is rapidly growing, the population in Black Forest, CO is estimated to be about 11,500.  Recreation includes an equestrian center, a 240-acre county park, and the 320-acre Fox Run Park.
