Stark Mountain

Where?

Battle Zone, just where it's annoying to get to. The easiest way there is to go to Resort Area, head up from the Pokémon Center, go all the way right when the road turns, sprint on up through that little patch of grass, continue along that path to the top left, navigate upwards through the sandstormy area until you come to a small pond, and then go up through the large grass patch there on the left. Finally, you should go on up until you get to the gatehouse on the left and go through there. Go left into that huge patch of grass and head upwards. When you come to a sign, go into the grass on your right and get out of it at the top, do the bike puzzle to get to the left where there's a female trainer and a ledge below to her right; jump carefully down that ledge (carefully because you don't want to go down the other ledge a couple of tiles below it), and then go left, up past the patch of grass, and turn right by the house. There are stairs there that go up; go up and to the right, up the bike bridge, up through that grass slightly on the left, to the right, jump down two ledges, go past the Karate guy on the left, and head up through that grass patch and up the stairs. Ta-da, you're on Stark Mountain (default area).

To get to the actual cave, go up the next set of stairs, into that grass and then left; you'll see the mouth of the cave above you. Once you're in, you're in the "Entrance" section; the "Inside" section is what you get to when you navigate through the fairly straightforward first room to the exit in the back of it.

Notes

Heatran (level 50) is found in the final room at the back of the cave.

Also, that house you passed on the way to the mountain? There's an old woman inside it who will heal your Pokémon. If you're training in Stark Mountain, that's definitely the place to go to heal instead of going all the way back to Resort Area. Just be careful to say no when she asks you if you want to rest again, or you'll be stuck forever.

How to read this table

The bolded horizontal headings stand for the main condition that affects the following slots; the big cells on the left side describe which circumstances must apply for the rows they span to be active. The percentages tell you the chance of a Pokémon from this slot (row) appearing for any given wild encounter, provided the condition on the left holds.

Each condition (i.e. each bolded horizontal heading) always has the same number of slots active. Usually it's two, though the radio condition in HG/SS has four slots and tables can have any number of static slots combined under one blank condition (-) for less cluttered viewing. This is reflected in the slots usually being displayed in pairs, which except for the aforementioned HG/SS radio conditions always means that only one pair is active at any one time. (For the radio conditions, it's either two pairs or one quadruple.)

If all this confuses you, and I don't blame you, just set the conditions in the form on the right to what actually applies for you right now and press the Refresh Table View button, which will hide all the inactive slots and leave only the Pokémon you're actually going to be seeing. This will also recalculate the statistics at the bottom of the table accordingly.
