Notes on Black Forest, Colorado - Welcome to our home page.
In these pages you will find information about the area, weather, businesses,
things to do and what to see.
Bordering the north end of
Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Black Forest area encompasses
some 200,000 acres, and is roughly defined as the area from
Highway 83 to Eastonville Road, and County Line road to Woodmen
Road in unincorporated El Paso County. The area is heavily
wooded with some open grassland areas, primarily on the southern
boundary, and is characterized by mostly 5 acre and larger lots
in a rural setting. 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, and horses are a common sight. The elevation
varies from approximately 6500-7800 feet, with Dennis's house at
7750 being the highest house in the Forest. Although the area is
rapidly growing, the population is estimated to be about 16,600.
The commercial center of Black Forest is the corner of Shoup and
Black Forest Roads where one can find the Community Center,
Volunteer Fire Station, churches, gas station and country store.
At first there were just a few cards. Now there are 113 (and growing)
Therefore it has to be it's own page.
