From Potter Fell summit. Along by wall. Take advantage of any crossing to n side of wall, as new fencing hampered our progress on s side. Used Gate back to s side just before summit. Descended on lovely paths to n of Gurnal Dubs and s from Potter Tarn KeithByTheC20/05/2020

From Garnett Bridge, parking at SD 5247 9915, possibly a passing place, but plenty big enough for a car. Little tricky with a deer fence and several stock fences to negotiate. Might be better to take the longer route from SD 5148 9805, as others have.jonglew22/09/2018
Parked along minor road to the south, walked up footpath to track, turned left and then ascended open access land from gate near lake. Went through gate in wall to the south west of the summit.JohnW19/02/2018
From Garret Bridge. After the 2 Potter Fells.ngthack30/10/2017
Surprisingly easy parking along the road to the south in one of the many pull-ins (alt 159m). Footpath from the south leads through a couple of fields to an unmade-up lane. Stile at the start of the open access gives entry to large area of rough fell. Look for a gate through the wall at the right-angled bend south west of the summit. This gives easy acess to the top (whichever one it is!) 4.8 km return, about 1 hour.moorsman27/10/2017

Walked from Stavely with my daughter, Hannah Hot and sunny. I Had managed to bag Brunt Knott the previous month but had gone too far before heading back to Stavely so ended up going round the far side of Ulgraves. This trip proved quite eventful too as we encountered an adder. As my daughter hates snakes she ended up waiting for me, on a stone on the path, rather than risk a trip through more bracken to the summit!flockwatcher09/11/2011
