Well, just asking them would the easiest route, but there are ways to beat around the bush...
First off, you can pay attention to the guys she hangs out with. Obviously if she is more than close with one of them, you can safely assume that she is in fact, dating someone else.
Another thing you can do is ask some of her friends if she is dating anyone. This would be what i would personally recommend since most girls (actually, people to be quite honest) hold their friends' opinions on their "significant other" quite highly. Make a good impression with her friends (thereby helping your chances of her saying "yes"), and ask if she is dating anyone. They also might be able to give you some insider tips on asking her out that you didn't think of.
All in all tho, i would personally say to go ahead and just ask the girl out face-to-face, but should that not be your style, take the friends approach.
Hope this helps you
