Location and Transportation

The Tri-Lakes area sits on the Palmer-Divide, which is the highest point of elevation on the Front Range, a geological ridge that separates runoff going to the Arkansas River from that flowing to the Platte River. Colorado’s main north-south highway, Interstate 25, runs straight through the Tri-Lakes area, connecting the communities to the big-city amenities of Colorado Springs (a 20-minute drive south of Monument) and Denver (approximately one hour to the north).

The area, which makes its home in the northernmost portion of El Paso County, is served by Mountain Metropolitan Transit’s FrontRange Express (FREX) commuter bus service. This affordable public transportation option connects Monument with both Colorado Springs and Denver several times a day (Monday-Friday). FREX operates a Park-n-Ride lot in Monument located at the northwest corner of Highway 105 and Woodmoor Drive.

Two exceptional commercial airports are readily available within reach of the Tri-Lakes area, as well. Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is a 30-minute drive south of the Tri-Lakes region. COS boasts five commercial air carriers that offer nonstop service to 13 U.S. cities, as well as convenient connecting flights, and handles more than two million passengers per year.

Need more options? Denver International Airport (DIA), located an easy one-hour drive north, is one of the largest international airports, not only in the U.S., but in the world. DIA is served by most major airlines and superior charter services, providing nonstop daily flights to hundreds of destinations across the globe.
