Full winter conditions making for hard going in the most part, but very enjoyable. Views available for long enough to make it a good day out.simocity02/02/2019
Parked at Kidhow Gate and walked up via South ridge. Down directly West to Pennine Way, which is more straightforward. Path up marked by a cairn at SD 83487 84393.Peter_W_Mitchell 24/08/2018
Walk up from North Gate. Was a bit of a bog trot with my my daughter Izzy. Weather was very cool 7C and quite breezy with a few passing showers. Saw Red Grouse, Meadow Pipits and a Snipe. Views across to Ingleborough were good. Got back to the car in the gloaming. Time 53 minutes for 2.2 miles.isabelle23/08/2018

From high point on road to SE, space for car near wall gap.. Followed wall then broke off up easy slopes to summit trig. Evening run, remarkably dry. Anyone else seen a strange plaque on a rock half way up saying Crossword Puzzle?N.Morters09/04/2018
The road to the East was blocked by snow, so a longer walk than planned. Thick fog made it a near whiteout on top - a real test of navigation. After missing the summit the first time, managed to relocate and eventually tick it off.huwthomas18/02/2018

In atrocious weather from Hawes with FRBheinn11/10/2017
A nice easy stroll along the Pennine Bridleway from Newby Head, followed by considerable athleticism wriggling between the wall and the wire fence above it to get out onto the hill. A soggy wet thrutch up deep vegetables to the top, but found a motorbike track down (yes really, hard as it is to understand this), which avoided the walls. Back the same way.Gill30/06/2017
From the widening of the Cam High Road by the second cattle grid from Hawes. Less boggy than its reputation.Nick Down130/05/2017

There and back from Hawes caravan site, gorgeous weatherTonyandsue28/12/2016
With K in mist. Best way up is follow Pennine Way from Cam High Road. At second shake hole where stream drops impressively there is a troll-like cairn on hill flank. Ascend here. ATV track/foot routes lead to summit.Ashley26/09/2016
Parked at start of PF(PW) along gated road.(Kidhow Gate)Walk up PW then up to large flat summit area.mart079706/06/2016

Solo. Thick low cloud. Last of snow drifts along walls at the start and in peat hags when crossing to the summit, along with the bogs, created a formidable and wet feet navigation test I will remember this one for a little longer than most. No views..Aimless Rambler16/03/2016
Parked at gate to Cam farm. They have just tarmaced the road. Walked up to wall then contoured around to summit. A lonely peak but good views of flat head Ingleborough. This moor made me think of American Werewolf in London and halve expected to hear a howl. Trig point had a moot around it. Company: Soloiandesbottes28/12/2015
Solo, from the roman road. Not the most inspiring of walk across the peat haggs in the mist.amswanston11/10/2015
DROVE TO HAWES AND UP KETTLWELL ROAD TO TOP OF HILL, THEN OUT AND BACK TO DRUMALDRACE ON EASY TRACK. DROVE ON ALONG GATED ROAD TO SOUTH OF DODD FELL HILL AND UP AND BACK. EASY TERRAIN BUT AWKWARD WALL.BURGESS11/10/2015

Solo walk from Hawes having accessed via Little White Bus from Garsdale station. Day walk from Hawes to Horton-in-Ribblesdale mainly following Pennine Way. Dull to start with but the day ended in warm sunshine. Dodd Hill boggy on top, glad not up here in winter. Gradual climb-good view especially over to Widdale. Few people hereabouts.JOHNS04/10/2015
From Newby Head.A bleak place to start but the scenery quickly improves. Next, approaching Cold Keld Gate, the tautologous Ma looks uninviting but I walked to a little cairn/shelter (clearly in view), then over surprisingly easy and pleasant terrain. The top is almost flat but a way off to attractive steep gulleys via a fine cairn above Cam Road was good. There isn't much of a wilderness experience between here and Ribblehead, trail riders and an unmade road for forest trucks see to that. The B-road between Ribblehaed and Hawes is surprisingly busy, too. I turned back at Gearstones and got back onto quiet Pennine paths and tracks back to the start. This was a 12 mile walk with an almost incidental Marilyn. Fine, mostly sunny and warm.pwheeler11/09/2015
From Fleet Moss, wetter underfoot than I was expecting.JohnStoneham23/08/2015

From viewpoint on minor road to E (SD860838), taking a relatively direct route up (and a longer way back because it was a nice day for a walk). Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/hoove-and-dodd-fell-hill.htmlGayle09/04/2015

Overnighted above Oughtershaw having driven back from the Lancasters Derwentllside flypast- arrived to put tent up in the dark - fun.. ? Drove to P.W. towards Cam House through 3 gates, followed track up wall and across open hillside, looks like trail bikes have been over here quite a bit, visited trig and decended to P.W. back to road.stig_nest22/09/2014

Walked on my own from Hawes. Hazy but good walking weather with a gentle breeze.flockwatcher05/05/2014
Standard circuit from Hawes, up the Pennine Way then returning over Drumaldrace. Thick mist all day and despite the lack of paths, navigation was straightforward from the PW to the summit trig.Jake99429/03/2014
Started in Burtersett, walked up to Drumaldrace cairn on Wether Fell, then walked along minor road towards Dodd Fell Hill, bagged this one then followed the Pennine Way back to Gayle, then took very clear footpaths through fields back to Burtersett.DanTrig24/03/2014

Parked where Pennine Way leaves the road so a little over a mile to the top. Top is in the middle of a relatively flat moor - easy to spot from a distance if visibility is ok but...clivevilla10/01/2013
