Visit the Tri-Lakes Communities - Monument, Palmer Lake and Woodmoor

Monument & Tri-Lakes

Beautiful scenery, friendly people and fascinating history are interwoven into the tapestry of the growing Tri-Lakes communities


The charming towns of Monument, Palmer Lake and Woodmoor are at the north edge of El Paso County, situated at the high point between Denver and Colorado Springs known as the Palmer Divide. 

Adjacent to Pike National Forest, just north of the United States Air Force Academy, Monument Colorado and the Tri-Lakes area is bordered by Black Forest on the east, the Gleneagle community on the southeast and County Line Road on the north. Only 40 miles from Denver, 20 miles north of downtown Colorado Springs and approximately five miles north of the Air Force Academy, the Tri-Lakes area is perfectly situated for residents who desire the diversity of mountain living along with easy access to Colorado's main cities via Interstate 25.

The Tri-Lakes area has miles of great hiking, biking and wildlife watching paths for your outdoor enjoyment. The United States Air Force Academy is a wonder to behold with the most popular stops being the Cadet Chapel, Visitor Center and Falcon Stadium. The New Santa Fe Trail runs parallel to Interstate 25 and takes you through this beautiful section of the Pikes Peak region. Find great attractions and activities to enjoy in Monument here.

Please note: The Cadet Chapel will be closed beginning September 4, 2019 for a major renovation project that will last 3-4 years.

There is a wonderful variety of indoor and outdoor things to do in Monument Colorado and the Tri-Lakes Areas.
