From road pass, up faint and wet path under a fence that leads up bleak moorland to summit.Topographer5711/09/2019
After camping down the Croasdale me and Bethany climbed a few boulders at cow stones, and used this hike to warm up a little. Pretty boggy and marshy on top with no proper path. Brilliant views to Yorkshire dales, Morecampe bay and Pendle.ByronHaywood21/07/2019
Followed a good path before it petered out. Stick to the fence line. No views, claggy.Play2End18/07/2019

With Val. From Cross of Greet. A tedious flog following fence across wet ground to the summit. Visited the old structure near the summit. Back along the same route. Not my favourite hill!!mike.hoult09/05/2019

Parked on road to north east 682 609 by cattle grid. Followed fence to top.There a better track to west of fence. After heavy rain was surprised that going was reasonably dry. A very dull hill!Deedubr22/09/2018
From Cross of Greet. 30 mins up to White Hill, then long slog to Wolfstone Crag. Returned same route.4hr round trip.Longwojo05/08/2018
From highpoint on road to north. Parking for 3-4 cars. Quick walk Via path alongside the fence to summit.N.Morters30/07/2018
From Cross of Greet bridge in midst of 2018 heatwave - underfoot was dry! Followed the track to south of Far Costy Clough to point 513, then via tower and trig to Cross of Greet. Continued via Great Harlow and down wall to road 300m se of cattle grid. Great views of 3 peaks.Clive G14/07/2018
Circular route from Slaidburn via Bridge of Greet, returning on track on opposite sideButeobuteo07/07/2018
Walked on my own from Cross of Greet Bridge. Glorious sunshine with a welcome breeze. The final approach to this summit when the path ends is hard work. There are a lot of peat bogs which were dry today but still quite hard to negotiate. The views from the summit are worth the effort though and the onward route is fine.flockwatcher01/07/2018
Solo. Parking area by Cross of Greet. Then bog and tussock following the fence to trig pt & nearby tower. 86 mins.ADT05/04/2018
High wind and lashing rain, so just a quick up and down from the top of the pass.ijpowell23/03/2018
Parked at cattle grid near Cross of Greet remains on the old county border of Yorkshire West Riding and Lancashire, did however find a more suitable parking area 15m north of grid on right. Followed fence 1.5 miles from road all the way to trig pillar and summit, joined by Gina. Still boggy despite being partially frozen and ankle deep snow. Must be much worse when temp above 0°C.SteveSmith18/01/2018

Might have seen colinfielding in passing. And met friends of the Crumblies too, heading to their hill walking club AGM. Tower near the summit for was built for sighting during construction of water tunnel to Manchester.Minto03/11/2017

From minor road to NE. Sort of a path. Odd tower near the top.jonglew03/11/2017

From the gate at the top of Woodhouse Lane to the top of the Hornby Road and then up the fence line to the gates at the top. Last halfmile to the summit a tortuous struggle through hags and tussocks. Heather in full bloom brightened up the scene.reaper27/08/2017

Bagging day in the Forest of Bowland after days of rain, we must be mad! Parked at Cross of Greet Bridge, walked up wet lane to grouse butts to end, guessed which way to go then walked across easy short heather then hideous water-filled groughs to tower and along fence to trig, followed fence along to top of pass, terribly boggy for some of the way, very wet for entire way, crossed pass and hideous bog channel in the col, then up easy grass and heather to Hailshowers Fell, easy terrain back along and down steep side to car park by bridge. Earlier that day bagged Top of Blaze Moss and Whins Brow (surprisingly not very boggy. 9.1 miles altogether, lovely and sunny.DanTrig04/03/2017
from cross of greet cp, followed fence up and back, 5kms, hard workbardolph24/01/2017
Last Marylin in Region 36 bagged (Alan Dawson Book) - from Greet Cross followed fence to summit - orange yellow brown black green - intense colours under a shifting sky with a bit of squelch underfoot - summit shrouded in cloud (mossy trig and sighting tower visited) a bit of cloud gazing then back down distant displays of sun searchlights crossing the hills. A special lonely place.briandavies30/12/2016
From Cross of Greet bridge, mainly pathless.rhalstead27/12/2016
A 90% enjoyable walk by starting at Higher Wood House and following Hornby road to the top. Easy dry grass up the fence to the plateau. This is followed by 10% gruesome slog to the trig through bogs, tussocks and mega hags. But it's only a short distance, so if you're out for a nice walk with minimal suffering, this could be the route the take.Gill28/08/2016
From Cross of Greet. Followed fence line to trig. Tried following 4x4 tracks down but just as wet & boggy after a while.mart079727/07/2016

Followed fence from Cross of Greet on very pleasant Spring afternoon.Lots of squelch.Hazy views of Three Peaks from top.catman04/05/2016
From Cross of Greet bridge by track then over Snout Berry Hill to trig. More direct descent. Heather bashing but not too bad and sunshine to boot.SS25/04/2016
Solo. Followed fence up from parking area at Cross of Greet. No dogs allowed on this Access Land.Dangerous Dave19/03/2016
A nice 10 mile round walk including the 2 Towers on White Hill and Bowland Knott. Underfoot conditions were slightly damp, it helped that we'd have a week or 2 of fine weather before the walk otherwise it'd be quite boggy. The walk is over moorland with no real defined paths (other than the gun track up from Greet Bridge). Some ability to navigate is required.b2dan14/02/2016

From big car park at Cross of Greet bridge. Path peters out quickly and then a flog through heather and bog. Not very white. 3rd of 3Thearlaichdubh27/10/2014
Cross of Greet Bridge,along Crosty Clough passing Shooters' Huts, to White Hill. Back via Botton Head Hill, Whitray Fell, Cross of Greet back down road to Cross of Greet Bridge. Very difficult to find way up over difficult terrain. Easy walk back along a fence. Great views of 3 peaks of Yorkshire.Lazylizzie14/09/2014
Skirted it on an 11mile walk. Expected to be 6hrs but raced through in under 4. Fine weather. Dry in preceeding week so feet stayed dry.laneyx13/09/2014
A mindless flog from the the road following a fence. Mercifully short. Put my foot down a boggy hole whilst taking a photo of Mrs Mindlessflogger 'enjoying' the tedium of it all. Only the discovery of a large glacial erratic beside the road to the north made the diversion on the way home worthwhile. (You cant miss it, its got steps up it).mindlessflogger19/05/2014
Short walk from Cross of Greet and surprisingly dry underfoot.bolton24/04/2014
Cross of Greet (plenty of parking) – Followed path alongside fence to summit. Tower to west was built as a sighting tower when surveying the route of the Haweswater Aqueduct. (PM)gerrybowes24/04/2014
Really enjoyed ascent from Cross of Greet, a beautiful spot. The 1/25K map a big help- landrover track to shooting hut, steep zigzag above the hut,then I could follow tracks all the way to Far Costy Clough. Followed clough bed as far as I could- this usually works to give good underfoot on peat moors and did today. About 200 m across poor terrain to the top; the 'ridges' looked awful going so I went back down by the clough, enjoying views of Craven/ 3 Peaks ahead, clear sunny day.pwheeler19/04/2014
