Instead of going all the way up to Columbine Campground, you can go up to Fall river road, and head toward St. Mary's/Alice.
At mile marker 1.0, turn right up York Gulch.
About 2 miles up, you come to a 4-way intersection - right is Bald Mountain Road to Central City, left goes to Alice/St. Mary's, and straight ahead takes you past Pisgah Lake all the way to Yankee Hill - it intersects the road from Columbine Campground about a mile or so after the 4-way intersection.
