Solid car park (alt 204m) to east but gated across road leads into dense bracken during the season. Possibly better to try the track leading off the road to the south. Hard slog through bracken and virgin heather. 1.47km but takes about 40 minutes return.moorsman31/07/2019

9 mile out-and-back walk from car park east of Garleigh Moor, over pathless ground from road onto Garleigh Hill, then down to footpath west, along to Simonside Hills car park and followed well made paths all the way along the ridge to Simonside summit, descended steeply and followed boggy footpath along to Tosson Hill then back to car park missing the Simonside ridge taking the forest lane north instead. Perfect autumn/winter weather cold, clear and bright.DanTrig06/11/2017
