Default NEED THE INFO (where to target practice)

In the Denver area. I want to target practice on public lands or national forest areas. No gun clubs or No shooting ranges , unless they are free. Would like to sight my rifle in out to 400yrds. Seen the maps on BLM website but don't want to drive for hours down dirt road hoping to find an open area to shoot. Does anyone know of some nice spots to shoot on public land or national forest. The reason I want to shoot in these areas is to have a little privacy away from the crowds and enjoy some beautiful scenery. I want to stay within an hour of Denver. Can anybody help me?

The fact that this post has gone unanswered for almost 10 months is an answer. 400 yard public land shooting areas an hour from Denver don't exist anymore. The metro area has 3.5 million people in it, and more construction every day, thanks to legal pot.

When I lived in Lakewood, I headed down to the Arapahoe National Forest near Deckers to shoot at long range. The Hayman fire scar can be seen on Google Earth,(it's huge)and is pretty good for long range shooting. I went during the week and saw almost no other people. Set up paper, or steel, or shoot at boulders way out there. All common sense saftey rules apply,of course, as it is a multi use area.
