Nestled into the deep pine and aspen forests in the shadow of Pikes Peak is the hidden retreat of Woodland Park North. This area exemplifies life in a quaint Colorado mountain town; however its still close to city amenities. The median price of homes here is $249,300 and although homes here can approach $2 million plus, some homes have sold here recently for under $30,000.
