Get off I-70 and head over by the lake but stay on the South side. If you go to the lake cross the bridge and work your way back west. Stick to the mountain. If you find a old tennis court you are real close. Look up along the side of the mountain and you will see a road that looks like it is going to a guys house about a 1/4 mile up. The road cuts back again and continues all the way up to the top. If you pass a boyscout camping cabin on the way up on the right your are on the right road. Ounce on top there are hunter roads going all over. Some places there are trees so thick you feel like you are going in a tunnel. I puttered around there for several hours and followed a stream which took me out on the Mt. Evans road. I then took the frontage road back up to George town.
This was several years back but I bet it is still open.

Or you can go into Empire (towards Winter Park) and half way through the town is a road (turn right) that will take you up to a trail system. Not exactly sure what road though. I would have to see it to find it.

You can also drive to Alice and go up to Kingston peak and drop into the Blackhawk/Central City area. Get a USFS map for Arapahoe National forest for better details. Take care of all your mapping needs at the USGS office in the Fed Center right off of 6th ave. and Kipling.
Hope this helps.
