Beginning at the Ophir Creek Road and Gardner Road intersection, Greenhorn Mountain Road snakes its way southeast through the San Isabel National Forest. It is a well-maintained dirt road until the last half mile, where it becomes rougher with baseball size exposed rocks. There is an abundance of campsites, ranging from single-vehicle sites to sites large enough for an RV. As you travel from north to south, you are teased with views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountain. Upon reaching the end of the road at the Greenhorn Trail trailhead, you are finally rewarded with expansive views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. Near the end of the road, two emerald-green lakes provide the perfect backdrop for a picnic. Although OHVs are not allowed on Greenhorn Mountain Road, there are four OHV-only trails that connect to the road with a parking lot large enough for multiple trailers.
