Much of the Black Forest area is nestled in towering Ponderosa Pines or beautiful open meadows, and the area name comes from its resemblance to the famous Black Forest in Germany. Neighborhoods in Black Forest take advantage of the area’s natural beauty by offering abundant open space, riding trails, country clubs, golf courses, and popular community parks including Black Forest Regional Park and Fox Run Regional Park.
With over 200,000 acres of Black Forest homes and land, there are plenty of neighborhoods to choose from. Many home lots are zoned for horses and range from 2.5 - 5 acres, and homes on higher elevations and with more open lots enjoy stunning views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range.
Black Forest neighborhoods are spread across three different school districts: Academy School District 20, Falcon School District 49, and Lewis Palmer School District 38.
