Learn more about Tri-Lakes

Tri-Lakes is located in picturesque Northern El Paso County. Stunning views and areas lined with indigenous Ponderosa Pines lend to the natural beauty of Tri-Lakes, a primarily rural region that has both custom homes built on half acre to five acre lots, as well as newer subdivisions that have more of a city feel.

The Tri-Lakes region is named after three lakes – Palmer Lake, Monument Lake and Lake Woodmoor. The towns of Palmer Lake and Monument are located in this area. Both towns are charming and quaint, while offering many convenient services, shops and restaurants.

Proximity to Bases

USAFA is an easy commute from the Tri-Lakes area. With easy access to I-25, some residents drive into Denver, a 40-50 minute commute to the north.

For the Family

Outdoor recreation opportunities abound in this beautiful region. Hiking, biking, walking, running and horseback riding are enjoyed by all ages in Tri-Lakes. Elephant Rock in Monument overlooks the much traveled and scenic Santa Fe Trail – now a walking and biking trail that runs from Palmer Lake to Colorado Springs. The Palmer Lake Reservoirs are another draw for residents and visitors alike. These reservoirs are less than an hour’s hike from the trailhead in town. On this trail, you’ll travel through the majestic Pike National Forest to the water’s edge.

Monument has a delightful farmer’s market all summer at the iconic “Big Red,” the area’s original school house. The farmer’s market, combined with boutique shopping nearby, make for fun weekend outings for the family. Monument is also home to one of the largest Fourth of July Parades in the state. The festivities begin with a breakfast and 5K fun run and end with an amazing fireworks display in Palmer Lake.

You can also take advantage of all of the amenities at the new YMCA complex and enjoy the vibrant art community of Tri-Lakes. Small shops and restaurants are conveniently located throughout the area, and several strategically placed big box stores are sprinkled across the landscape adding to the ease of living in the area.

By the Numbers

The Tri-Lakes area sits at an elevation of approximately 7,300 feet. With a higher elevation than much of the Colorado Springs region, Tri-Lakes typically receives more snowfall and has cooler temperatures than Colorado Springs. While the average snowfall total is 68 inches for the entire Colorado Springs metro area, Tri-Lakes sees an average of 112 inches! Afternoon thunderstorms in Tri-Lakes are a delight as they come and go quickly – evaporating sometimes in less than an hour! The area to the west of I-25 is set more into the foothills, and the sun sets earlier here than on the east side. (This is true not just of the Tri-Lakes area, but of all areas running along the Front Range that are nestled in the foothills).
