Named by a German immigrant who thought it resembled the Black Forest in Germany, this community offers spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, the surrounding forests and their wildlife. It is the highest area east of the Rocky Mountains, and many local sites are visible in the distance including Pikes Peak, the U.S. Air Force Academy and north Colorado Springs.
At the center of town is a community center, and residents get together for a variety of activities – from town meetings to dance recitals. The Black Rose Acoustic Society, a local organization that is well-known for supporting music and the arts, sponsors concerts and open stage events by local and national performers.
This close-knit community has seen a rapid growth in its population with more than 13,000 people now calling Black Forest home. Many residents work in Colorado Springs and Denver, but they prefer to live in this charming rural community. Other residents own small businesses in Black Forest, which is an incorporated part of El Paso County, or work from home.
The median price for homes in Black Forest is approximately $232,500. Many of the properties are parcels of five acres or more – allowing homeowners to keep horses and other ranch animals. It is also not surprising for forest animals to pay residents a visit. Nestled among the Ponderosa Pines and Golden Aspens, residents can get in touch with nature and enjoy the serenity of Black Forest.
