Gardner Road provides easy access into the San Isabel Nation Forest from Colorado Highway 69. Gardner Road repeatedly alternates between national forest land and private property belonging to the Centennial Ranch Aspen Mountain Ranch Association. As always, be respectful of the area and keep an eye out for the free-range cattle that graze in the area. There aren't any campsites along Gardner Road, but there are plenty of designated campsites along nearby Deer Peak Road and Ophir Creek Road. For maximum viewing pleasure, Gardner Road should be driven from north to south. Views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range are absolutely spectacular.
