From small parking area at end of road to North Ings farm using track to east of Commondale Moor out and to west back, cutting over North Ings Moor on return.SS19/02/2017
A fine circular sea-to-summit walk from Saltburn. Up the lovely Saltburn Gill, via Hagg farm to the much less scenic Asda roundabout, through the industrial estate (it gets better, honest), along the railway to pick up Cleveland street LDP. Via Priestcliff, Boosbeck, Jenny Frisk Rd (wrecked by trail bikes), and over Low Moor (nice) to the excellent tea wagon on the A171 (homemade cakes). Quakers causeway and then off piste to Hob on the Hill, then off piste via the earthwork to the track leading to the top. Back via the trig, and the Cleveland way to Saltburn. Nice views all the way back, except for Skelton (but the sunset made it look better, with god rays and everything). Skelton Beck and the railway viaduct are very good. A fine expedition, and it's easy to get to Saltburn by train. Objective dangers: heather burning, a plague of dog shit (no poop scoops round here) and serious altitude sickness.Gill12/01/2017
From Commondale Station by good paths. Lots of grousetrimarc211/01/2017

Solo. From the parking place west of Commondale at NZ656105 along rights of way NW until very close to summit. Took the variations more to the NE side where there were variations. Stood on rock at highest point and visited the two ancient cairns as well. On descent observed convoy of 17 4WD descending on nearby track. Only a very small muddy bit not far from start.pwbellarby24/09/2016

Track/path from west of Commondale.AndrewFinnimore15/06/2015
Car park at Great Ayton Station, Cliff Rigg, Roseberry Topping, Great Ayton Moor, Gisborough Moor, Easby Moor. Walk with lots of variety and good paths nearly all the way. Exception is at farm at Sleddale where confluence of rights of way suggests likely permissive passage through the farm, but not so. Was politely informed as we were leaving the farmyard by very friendly farmer in his 80's. The alternative would have been a diversion round the farm on access land with no path, so it depends how conscientious you are.ijpowell04/06/2015
