Around the turn of the century, Black Forest was an important source of railroad ties and lumber that built the Pikes Peak region.Today it retains its rustic feel with its heavily wooded areas and grassy meadows. Black Forest residents and visitors enjoy miles of wilderness trails for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The area abounds in wildlife and horses. Its rural commercial center offers a community center, volunteer fire station, country store, churches and other small businesses. Major shopping is a mere 10 minutes away.
