The Black Forest Trails Association is a local community non-profit organization with the following goal: To create a safe, legitimate, non-motorized, multi-use recreational trail system that connects Black Forest neighborhoods to each other and the El Paso County Regional Trail System.
The BFTA organization works with local residents and various government agencies to ensure Black Forest area public trails are kept in good shape, new trails are included in new development plans, works with local residents to create connecting paths between our many beautiful parks and trails systems, plus much more to help keep your Black Forest area parks and trails open and pleasurable for your use.
We in Black Forest are blessed with an assortment of county parks that provide ample opportunity to get out and explore the great outdoors! Whether you hike, jog, bike, ride horses or play on the swings, we all benefit. A sampling of our local parks include:
These gems are there for the taking and the county does all they can to render them safe, fun and useful. Despite their best efforts our county is budget limited and relies on citizen groups to help bridge the gap. These groups are called Friends Groups. READ MORE...
