Hutton Roof Crags & Farelton Fell from road HP between hills. These are a must for lovers of limestone. There are a number of unmapped tracks (through scrub) on Hutton.ger05/05/2019

Another 'interesting' visit to Hutton Roof. This time tackled it from fell road to north, visiting the 'new' high point cunningly detected by the Abney man. Those 60cm make all the difference! This is a great fell to get lost on.citygent22/11/2018
Climbed from lay-by on A65 just before M6 via field paths, very quiet country lanes, bridleways cross minor road then onto Hutton roof moor where a meandering path climbs up through stunted shrubs.When limestone crags show through push right onto limestone pavement by large cairn where thin path goes to summitrobert15/10/2018
Solo. On the way home fter a few days n Keswick. Parked in Quarry car park to the south. Followed path that starts to the left of the picnic tables and continues to the TP. Another 100m approx. to the highest point. Good weather.mike.hoult15/09/2018
After Lambrigg Fell, drove down M6 and parked at picnic site in wood to S of hill. Beautiful woodland with native trees and Limestone Pavement. Picked first Blackberries of this year.IanHHill02/08/2018
Walked up straight after work (Dalton Hall Business Centre at SD538761 - marked as 'Home Farm'). Very hot and got harassed by flying ants almost constantly. Got a bit disorientated in the woods but eventually found the wide track to the top. Views good but a little hazy. N.B. - no access via Crag House.James McKnight26/07/2018
From carpark, then on to the Limestone pavement.tomd409/07/2018
From the picnic car park to the South. The footpath to the right of the picnic tables leads to the trig then 110m cross bracken to high point.NormanW06/06/2018

From North followed a good path up to the ridge and then fought our way thru birches. If we had carried on another 200yds a path would have taken us to the top. With Colin.bevandy11403/05/2018

No. 3 of seven M6 Marilyns. From the quarry car park. Through the gate, up the clear path, cross another path and follow a nice path along a shallow valley bounded by low limestone crags. Left along the broad track in dark woodland, then follow your nose upwards. Forgot my compass, but it was pretty obvious where the top is. Great views.Gill26/08/2017
From quarry car park. A straightforward lovely ascent. Quite the view from the trig pillar . Gotta love this limestone pavement stuff too..stig_nest13/08/2017

From road to north - plenty of parking. Good track from stile at 550,786. Confusing array of tracks, but made the right pick every time.Crib Goch03/12/2016
From quarry following paths to trig then short stroll to summit (small white rock hidden in grass). Pleasant enough and surprisingly busy.SS27/11/2016
From the north. A good Autumn stroll.jenx12/10/2016
Repeat w Jenx from the North again, nr pt 192. Walk down the road a 100 m or so to another gate with path leading off. This heads direct to top, but then veers left around a fault line, stay with it and possible to follow a line when through this onto the summit plateau. Came back direct again past the alternate top/cairn and down the bottom of the edge to rejoin path up about half distancenordicstar12/10/2016
From the dedicated C.P Follow your nose.Play2End22/07/2016
From high point on minor road to north. Note for future users...two paths head towards Hutton Roof take the one opposite the track to Wrey Farm (handy sign). The other drags you too far towards the village as this author found...confusing array of paths at top, but found the good one down... Interesting Limestone pavement jungle!N.Morters26/05/2016

A good walk from the Quarry Car Park. The main (obvious) path will take one directly to the summit. Great walking on Limestone pavement.Neil Haslewood17/10/2015
From Cawthorpe to Hutton Roof road summit. This is definitely not the place for a quick bag. However, a great place for a confusing ramble with amazing scenery; watched climbers on Hanging Scar and perched on the sloping clints of The Rakes for lunch. Eventually I gave up working out how to get to the summit,returned to the road, and took a more southerly path. At a junction at the top of woodland I scrambled out into the open (rough paths) to a big cairn. After a while, there is a point which looks like the summit photo .It isn't- and neither is the summit photo. Go through a little path through tall trees and there is another little scarp and at last you get there. It all looks much easier from the S. The quality of the wildlife- even so late in summer eg Large Red Helleborines at 800 ft above s/l,Wall butterflies, very rare buckler ferns- is evident. This is wild Morecambe bay limestone with barely any grazing. If you like easy access, be careful what you wish for with re-wilding.pwheeler08/09/2015
Parked at brow of hill NNW of summit. Made error of following path signed Hutton Roof. Realised I'd have to cut through bushes - nightmare - should have turned back. Should have parked a bit further south west in the layby by the interpretation board, from where follow a good path south east through shrubbery and bracken. Eventually path descends a little then doubles back by a wall amidst head high bracken (got a soaking) and at last open country to the trig and summit. Path south east is shown on my 1:25,000 map and the whole path is shown on the Topo map on my GPS. As far as I can see there's no alternative route from the north. Owing to huge amount of time spent forcing my way through shrubbery at the start I didn't have time for Farleton Fell which looks much more pleasant as it's proper open limestone country (no bushes) and can be accessed from the recommended parking place.ijpowell22/08/2015
With Jo, from Crag House Quarry cp: Hutton Roof Crags (top and trig), then across to Farleton Fell and Farleton Knott. Weather; generally sunny, warm, good visibility.amblerbob07/08/2015
quarry car park maze of paths to the top.robertphillips18/07/2015
I made a right mess of reaching this one from the north by initially taking the left instead of the right fork in the path not far from the road. I spent ages skirting around the summit and eventually going cross country to get there and ended up pretty damp. Nice top though.Father Ted14/06/2015
From Kirby Lonsdale (Devils Bridge) we follow lanes and cross the fields to Hutton Roof then up onto the vast flat top of the crag - a complex limestone landscape - trees - ferns - following meandering paths through the outcroping limestone we disturb a badger not aware of our presense (fab!). Eventually we find the top - its trig and views of the higher Lancashire / Yorkshire peaks. Our return similar but via different lanes.briandavies06/06/2015
Walked up from minor road to north via various paths.mart079724/03/2015

From quarry car park . Limestone hill, complete with pavements . Good all round views.Mark Sims06/02/2015
Walked up from the quarry car park on the road south of the top. A pleasant walk through beech woods leads to more open limestone pavement country side and the trig point. Its an English Nature reserve and a gate through the wall just SW of the top means its all very user friendly.mindlessflogger18/09/2014

With Cabe, nice top. Despite comments from other baggers it's reasonably straight forward to take a well trod path to the top. Take the path from car park up quarry side, go through gate then take path immediately to right. Follow this and when you getsimon and co26/10/2011

From quarry car park. Lots of paths - tricky bit is working out the correct one. When you reach the wall (at right angles) you don't (from my experience) need to cross it. Follow it west then it bends around.destaylor22/12/2008

Summit took some finding amongst the gorse and the limestone pavement. Was on my way from Dentdale to Arnside so didn't have a huge amount of time to spare!DanHolme09/10/2006
