Those looking for privacy, trees, space and natural beauty are generally drawn to Black Forest. Whether they want to keep their horses close by or keep a flock of laying hens, Black Forest appeals to many home buyers.
Black Forest is located northeast of Colorado Springs and is part of unincorporated El Paso county. Consequently, many of the homes here are on well and septic rather than municipal service.
Black Forest gets it’s name because the Ponderosa Pine forest appears like a black area when viewed from the top of Pikes Peak.
