The Tri-Lakes Region occupies the northern most
part of El Paso County, Colorado. Geographically,
we are the heart of the highlands, a short distance
between Denver and Colorado Springs. We are a land
of red rock escarpments, of undulating pine forests,
of Front Range mountain backdrops crested in blue
sky and dotted with powder puff clouds.
We share our home with the United States Air
Force Academy. The communities of Monument, Palmer
Lake and Woodmoor are the center of our commerce
and for which the regional name of Tri-Lakes is
derived. The primarily unincorporated areas of
Gleneagle, Black Forest, Kings Deer and Larkspur
are representative of our popular and developing
residential areas, making the Tri-Lakes one of
the most diverse regions in Colorado.
Several hundred businesses serve our growing
region of over 35,000 residents, making us a consumer
based economy. Technology and education also are
at home in Northern El Paso County. Software products
and services, advanced communication and electronic
technologies are supported by the Pikes Peak Community
College system and our large professional technical
The small town ambiance and historic flavor of
Palmer Lake and Monument are the very best "getaways"
for shopping, relaxation, exploring, hiking and
biking in our region. Come and experience what
we have in store for you.
Do what many of us do...take a break from the
interstate, jump off the I-25 corridor at Larkspur
or Monument and enjoy the idyllic drive among the
rock outcrops and mountain vistas that take you
along Route 105 through Palmer Lake and Monument.
Stop for lunch, take a respite, browse the shops,
enjoy your favorite ice cream or just experience
the change of pace.
Welcome to the Tri-Lakes Region...a
community working together.
