Located along the Rampart Range of the majestic Rocky Mountains, the Tri-Lakes region is a blend of several small communities; the incorporated towns of Monument, Palmer Lake and Larkspur, along with the areas of Woodmoor, Gleneagle, Jackson Creek, Kings Deer and Black Forest. The area also hosts the exclusive United States Air Force Academy.
Each of these communities has its own unique character, offering a rich fusion of hometown atmosphere combined with all-weather recreational activities, breathtaking views, a wide variety of art galleries and artisans, fine dining and unique shopping.
At an average altitude of 7,000 feet, it is named for the three lakes in the area. 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 the desire 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. Its unique setting allows residents to enjoy the best of two worlds: close proximity to major urban centers, first-class medical facilities, an excellent library system and quality education. In addition, the areas each provide a wide variety of local small-town businesses, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and cafes. These amenities lend themselves to an unmatched quality of life.
