"Out East," as we say in Denver, is Elbert County. It forms the eastern boundary of Douglas County with a road well named, 'Delbert Road' (Douglas-Elbert). Small cities and towns located in Elbert County include Agate, Elizabeth, Elbert, Fondis, Kiowa (county seat), Matheson, Ponderosa Park, and Simla. This also great riding country with more forested areas than Douglas County and is a great value for the money.
