Warm and sunny to start with after parking in lay-by to NE beside historic Woodhouses Bastle (old fortified farmhouse). Down road to bend, gate onto access land, then easy amble to top. Then off-piste route towards Dues Hill and The Beacon trig, going round to the west of the forest to complete a circuit of this hill and a direct line back to lay-by. Rain on walk back to car.Dugswell208/05/2018
Think that I spotted the easy way ...... as I came down! Park in the bastle car park (alt 119m) and follow the concessionary track to behind the building. There you will find a gate which gives access to a path which, after turning right, leads you through some gates to the edge of the farmland. Turn left and follow the field edge until a vehicle track slants off to the right. This leads you to a public footpath waymark post. Follow this to the right to some old fence posts. Once you find these a track can be followed uphill to the col and thence to the trig. DO NOT TRY AND GO THROUGH THE WOOD. Fallen trees make progress very difficult and the trig is exposed on the northern side.3.2 km return, 60 mins, ascent 198m.moorsman05/08/2017
From Harehaugh Hill. Joined fp at 961.993. This doesn't feature on the 1:25,000 map. Several gates in teh wall west of the Harehaugh access area, but need to fight through shoulder high myrtle bushes. Followed fp to '5 kings', ascent by wal in bracken, then through jenga of fallen trees to discover that the summit has been cleared. Access recommended from the N.Moorponder10/07/2017
Good parking in layby for the National Parks' historic Woodhouses Bastle to E, near Holystone Grange. Gate at S end of layby then green track through wood to open country with four large standing stones at NT 9574.0010. Steeply up side of wood to cleared summit area. Trig stands on extensive boulder pile.Aye Jimmy05/05/2016
Across country from Harehaugh Hill - rough route but do-able. Hill is wooded, but the summit area has now been felled so access to trig not difficult. Great views to North and East.Crib Goch23/03/2014
