When standing at the crest of the majestic Pikes Peak, if you look toward the Black Forest, it appears to be a big black spot, hence its name. Much of the area falls within unincorporated parts of scenic northeastern El Paso County, Colorado, in the 80908 zip code. Black Forest encompasses roughly 125 square miles, including the Black Forest Regional Park, and has an average elevation of 7,300 feet above sea level. Douglas County serves as its northern border, while Woodmen Road serves as its southern border.
Just over thirteen thousand people live in the area, which offers an average commute of just twenty-six minutes. It is a family-friendly community served by multiple school districts. In the western and southern part of Black Forest children are served by Academy School District 20; on the eastern part of the community they’re served by Falcon School District 49, and on the northwestern part of Black Forest they’re served by the Lewis Palmer School District 38.
In 2013 the Black Forest area suffered a massive wildfire and nearly five hundred homes and thousands of acres were destroyed. As a result, there is a lot of new construction in Black Forest, as well as vacant land for sale. The average lot in Black Forest is over seven acres in size, which means the community is perfect for people seeking privacy or those that own horses or love trees. Because much of the area is in unincorporated El Paso County, many Black Forest properties rely on septic and well for sewer and water. Existing homes for sale in Black Forest are of a wide variety of sizes, ages, and architectural styles, and because of the extraordinary diversity of Black Forest real estate, listing prices span a vast range.
