From Gravel Pit (on minor road to Great Dun fell just outside Knock) - Initially deterred by heavy rain we ascend Knock Pike - As conditions improve we follow footpath alongside Swindale beck flanking Flagdaw and joining the service road track up Great Dun - Cloud closes in around us at pole 287 - horizontal hail by pole 90 but nearly there - bag summit of Great Dun Fell and make a hasty retreat. Visibility at top less than 50 yrds.briandavies11/11/2018
Parked on wide verge by entrance to disused gravel pit at 6853 2879 - Through gate opposite & along RoW to sheep pens - Over a couple of gates into access land & then up over short grass to unmarked summit, making use of occasional animal trods & ATV tracks. (S)gerrybowes10/10/2018
With Jo, circular walk from near Christian Centre. Ascended along Dunfell Road and descended by footpath to Town End Farm. Weather; cloudy, occasional drizzle, moderate visibility.amblerbob13/09/2018
Up and down from the first gate past the Christain Centre.Eddie23/05/2018
With K in a round from Dufton including Dufton Pike. Footpath following track from Knock to Knock Pike is almost impassable due to growth/collapse of a large number of thorn bushes (blackthorn, rose etc.) Also loads of flies on this route. Recommend doing it from road end to NW of hill instead.Ashley22/04/2018
From Dufton on Pennine Way,then over to northern part of Knock Lane(which is overgrown,prickly and muddy and should be avoided).Through access land to pleasant summit and back via radar road and Knock.Excellent weather.With Bridget and Oscar.catman21/04/2018

With Jenx and Bryher, up the bridleway lane from Knock, very wet and muddy in places. Someone had tried to cycle it and lost their bike I think ;-). Once onto hill pleasant going, superb views. Back direct to Christian centre and road to start.nordicstar25/10/2017

Parked in Knock, took direct ROW to access land then up SE ridge. Fine views, strong E breeze. Picked up sheep tracks and wider grassy tracks to descend to W old quarry on N side of hill. Continued with Brownber Hill(qv) and Dufton Pike(qqv) in a day's walking (5h20min) in the fascinating Whin Sill area between the high pennines and Eden Valley.pwheeler08/05/2017

From the minor road to the north. Pleasant grassy slopes all the way to top.Campbell Singer10/08/2016
7.5 walk from Knock village in perfect weather, walked up path to Knock Pike (Nice Little Hill), then back and along paths across fields to NW ridge up onto Dufton Pike (Great Little Hill), descended same way and thought Brownber Hill looked to tempting to ignore, so slogged up steep slopes to Brownber Hill Top, back along paths to Knock, then travelled to Baugh Fell.DanTrig16/05/2016
Walked on my own from Dufton. Fine and dry but lots of white cloud and rather too hazy for good views. Very windy on the summit.flockwatcher07/05/2016

Knock Pike, Flagdaw, Burney Hill. No highland cattle today on Knock Pike today. There's gated access to the fell from the quarry.ijpowell11/07/2014
There's a lane around the back of this hill, and unexpectedly a large quarry with face about 150' high. Easy grassy slopes to sudden arrival on summit marked by single small stone.Aye Jimmy10/08/2013
After Dufton Pike and Brownber Hill.Crib Goch06/04/2013
Wintery day with summit just below the snowline. Very steep descent to the north which was a bit tricky as I was in trainers having left my boots back in my car in Brimingham!signyred09/03/2013
Parked to N. Track then bits of paths. Highland cattle with young still there - gave them a very wide berth and followed wall when got to it on way back - so that if needed could scramble over it!destaylor20/09/2012
Climbed up from road. Interesting when I discovered that there was a herd of highland cattle on the hill but, luckily, they were friendly.clivevilla01/09/2012
As chrisbien - climbed as first fell of the day on round of the Cross Fell range - parked by quarry at NY 686 288 - room for one car.Man of Kernow112/07/2012
