Located along the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains, the Tri-Lakes region is a blend of five small communities: Monument, Palmer Lake, Woodmoor, Gleneagle, and Black Forest.
This area is located just 19 miles north of Colorado Springs and 40 miles south of Denver. Each of these five towns (actually, only Monument and Palmer Lake are incorporated—the others are areas in El Paso County) has its own unique character, offering a rich fusion of home-town atmosphere combined with year-round recreational activities, breathtaking views, a wide variety of art galleries and artisans, fine dining, and unique shopping.
With an average altitude of 7,000 feet, the three lakes in the area give it its name. Newcomers are greeted by a wonderful year-round climate and a diverse landscape ranging from gently rolling hills to soaring ponderosa and aspen forests set in front of a backdrop of rugged mountain terrain with stunning red rock vistas.
Tri-Lakes is a region that has evolved from an attempt to create a cultural haven, to a small agricultural community with a rich history, into a vibrant place to live where businesses are growing and thriving.
The area's unique setting allows residents to enjoy the best of two worlds.
First, the area enjoys close proximity to major urban centers, nearby first-class medical facilities, an excellent library system, and quality education.
Second, the area provides a wide variety of local small-town businesses, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and cafes.
These amenities of the Tri-Lakes area lend themselves to an unmatched quality of life.
