Parked at cattle grid as previously described. Ground ruined by atv tracks and sodden, worse than some of the popular Scottish hills. Sunny and breezy on top and great views.iangalbraith21/02/2019

Hike from Kettlewellmaaaaaaaatty24/10/2018
With J on the way back from a trip to the Borders. Parked just to NE of cattle grid on high point of the road & followed the standard path to the summit. Not too soggy considering recent rainfall. Met several folk on their way down but had summit to ourselves. Extensive view with some mist drifting across occasionally. Down by the same route.NotReallyABagger15/10/2018

Standard walk up from Kettlewell via Hag Dyke on well-marked footpaths. Hot and hazy day but views still excellent. Next onto Tor Mere Top.JOHNS27/07/2018
From Coniston up the Dib and the Turf Road onto the moor. Followed the fence and boundary stones (the path gets better as you ascend) to the top. Returned via Hag Dyke,Kettlewell and the Dales Way. Warm Day and the moor was bone dry.reaper22/07/2018
