From Kielder, and also took in Peel Fell via the Forestry paths. With Laura, Housechild, Vicky, Mark, Hannah, James and Jon.Grinner28/12/2019

Usual parking - dirt layby N of Kittythirst Cott (NY 6085 9641). Good forest road to Rushy Knowe, could have easily driven it, then waymarked FP to top of Peel Fell. Across rough to Mid Fell, then narrow track through the rough to here. Returned on comms site access road to NY 6212 9566, whence continued on to meet my outward track at NY 6087 9699. All in all, a very civilized 9 miles.jonglew09/09/2019
From layby north of Kittyhirst Cottage via Peel Fell and Mid Fell as others. Track to west is a bit rough underfoot so if you want a better but slightly longer track use the ond to the east. Faint path across moor.ijpowell01/08/2019
Round of 3 from layby at start of foresty road just north of Kittythirst cottage. Forest roads to Rushy Knowe then path beside wall up to Peel Fell. Then followed path beside old metal fence posts south eastish before they dog legged to the summit of Mid Fell. Path then to Deadwater Fell and return along forest roads.mart079701/07/2019

Parked in lay-by NW of Kittythirst Cottage at 608964 - Up 3 miles of forest tracks to trig point & then continued along service road to high point. (PM)gerrybowes12/01/2018
Good parking just north of Kittythirst cottage. The looping service road means an easy walk to the summit but the latter part via Three Pikes. 2 hour 10 minute return with GB in good conditions.bolton12/01/2018

From mid fell. Not a lot of fun but at least it didnt rain! So much clutter on the top but it did provide shelter from the wind..descent via the black route and then along tracks to Deadwater farm.stig_nest13/09/2017
From Kittyhurst Cottage. Forestry tracks - Deadwater Fell - Mid Hill - Peel Fell. Descent to Master Grain to pickup a forestry track at 626.987Moorponder09/07/2017

Started at Kielder castle carpark. Easy trail/forest road to the summit. Last 20m of the summit it started to snow and visibility was less than 10m. Storm shelter was useless because the wind blew straight in the opening. Found a collapsed building with a bit of roof to shelter in. However, after lunch visibility had dropped to 5m and it was still snowing... so decided not to proceed to Peel Fell but headed back the way we came. 30m down and you wouldn't believe the difference in temperature and conditions.NorthernWayfarer05/02/2017

1/3 Deadwater Fell - Mid Fell - Peel Fell. Parked in Kielder at the castle car park (£4.50 all day parking) and followed the forestry tracks and mountain bike trails to the summit.Stormcrow01/10/2016
Parked near church (now has 'Sold' sign). Bridge, forest tracks and MTB trail. No globe on tower at moment, antennae exposed to the elements, soon to be plastered in snow and ice. Continued to Mid Fell.Aye Jimmy18/09/2016
From track end near Kittythirst all the way to Deadwater Fell and its paraphernalia. From there its was heather bashing to Mid Fell and on to Peel Fell. There is a half decent path down following the border until the track is picked up again. Pleasant walk in good weather.SS17/09/2016

Deadwater Fell, Mid Fell and Peel Fell. Parked in the layby by Kittyhurst Cottage and went up the forestry tracks to Deadwater Fell. They are easy to follow and match the OS map exactly. From there to Mid Fell and then the weather came in. Luckily there are old metal fence posts marking the way to Peel Fell but I didn't fancy descending off piste so retraced my steps. Nearly 4 hours round trip.clivevilla23/10/2015
Parked at NY 60832 96429. Space for half a dozen cars. Followed forest tracks and eventually a black bike run (Skellys Riggin) to the top of Deadwater Fell.Followed fence on right hand side of track down and crossed the continuation of the track and again followed path across Deadwater Moor to Mid Fell. Continued following path to top of Peel Fell. Then down following the border and eventually through forest back onto track. Followed track back to carpark. Track and path all the way. A bit cold and a bit sqelshy. A good walk.MikeM11/10/2015
From Kittythirst to road end at 614988, then marked Kielder Stane route on faint boggy paths via Peel Fell, Mid Fell, to Deadwater FellPeteN01/03/2015
Surveyed with Graham Jackson and John Barnard Galltywenallt04/12/2014
Jen and my final English Marilyn, and my 1200 P100. With Rob W, Charles E, Alan D, Martin R and Lucy F. Usual layby at Kittyhirst, took the track keeping to the left and the burn line. Broke out the trees at end of track to find a good path with yellow markers now set up the wall line starting down in the cleared forest area. This path continues right round to Deadwater and is very straightforward. Not the struggle others have reported. Great cake and whisky party on top also with height measurement by Alan.nordicstar09/11/2014

With Jo, circular walk from Kielder Youth Hostel: forest tracks onto Deadwater Fell, then across easy moorland to Mid Fell and Peel Fell (two tops), descending by border fence and returning along railway track from Deadwater Station. Weather; cloudy with occasional sunny intervals, surprisingly cold on DWF but mild thereafter, good visibility. Good all round views from each top.amblerbob25/06/2014
