To use the shortcut I found drive the Miller Flat road. Halfway between the reservoir and the turnoff for Indian Creek campground you will find a turn off with a kiosk. The sign here says there is an East mountain trail. The trail is not at all clear in many spots and I got so frustrated I just bushwacked up the side of the mountain. Worked for me, should work for you too.
