Careful review of tax maps in this area shows that the [aforementioned] approach to Huckleberry Mountain over the summit of Crane is entirely on state land. There is an old state trail that runs through the valley in front of the cliffs, and it appears to be used by snowmobiles and ATVs. While the endpoints of this trail are private, the section in the valley near the cliffs is on state land.
This link shows the private/public boundary accurately for this area.
Although it looks tempting to approach from the nearby roads east and west of the valley, these cross private property that is vigorously protected by its owners. Avoid these approaches unless you have permission from the owner(s).
