Community of Black Forest

Black Forest is a community located in El Paso County.

It’s barely a 30 minute drive to Black Forest from the heart of Colorado Springs via I-25 S.

Located just northeast of Colorado Springs, Black Forest is a community of people who appreciate the beauty of the Ponderosa Pine, and the forested haven in the desert that they offer. It’s a secluded region to appreciate the sprawling Colorado landscape, and close enough to the amenities and entertainment that the big city offers.

Rightfully named, Black Forest is located in a distinct area of black Ponderosa Pine trees. When looking down from nearby mountain Pikes Peak, it looked like a dense, dark mass of bush placed there at random. It’s a beautiful area and the reason people love to live there.

Black Forest Real Estate

The Black Forest CDP (census-designated place) covers an area of just under 65,000 acres, which means there are massive properties available in the community.

The Black Forest homes for sale in this area are typical for a Colorado Springs community, but with larger lots because of the abundant space. Cottage, farmhouse, craftsmen, and mid-century modern are a few styles available in Black Forest.

Three different school districts are found in Black Forest, making this beloved community a fantastic place to start, or raise, a family of any size.

Residents of Black Forest typically value the privacy that the trees can offer them, from their neighbours, and from the hustle of the big city. There’s also more room out there for better real estate opportunities, larger homes, and even extra space for things like horse caring.

Enjoy the country life with open space underneath the Ponderosa Pines, with just a short trip to the big city or a mountain hike.

Things to Do in Black Forest

Besides being a short drive from everything that the city of Colorado Springs has to offer, there’s so much available right in Black Forest.

The wide open spaces and great outdoors is one of the most alluring aspects of Black Forest. With so much varying terrain surrounding the community, from mountains to rolling plains, there’s never a shortage of new adventures.

With the newly implemented Pineries Open Space Trail that winds through the community of Black Forest, connected to a larger network of hikes and pathways, the area offers the best trails in El Paso County. Biking and horseback riding is also a passion many can take advantage of on these trails.

Two of the most popular parks in the area are Black Forest Regional Park and Fox Fun Regional Park. The former is a developed area with tennis courts, turf fields, playgrounds, and more, while the latter is a great place for hiking and picnicking, with ponds, gazebos, and more along the way.

Black Forest is also considerably higher than Colorado Springs -- over 1000 more feet above sea level! This means during the winter months, they get much more snow, perfect for activities like:

  • Snowshoeing
  • Cross-country skiing
  • Snowmobiling
