I read on one of the fire tower history websites that if you contact the Underwood Club in advance, they are usually pretty generous about allowing hikers to visit the summit, provided that they use the State Land approach.

But I haven't been anywhere near there or heard anything in at least a decade, so things might have changed.
You could still approach it via a lengthy bushwhack from the south, from West River Road.
