1.1 mile up and down from car park north, followed main track out of car park (not steps), walked around the corner and followed sign to summit, steep ascent to top from there, good views of surrounding hills with the cloud just starting to clear off Stiperstones, a few people about. Afterwards drove round to The Bog and did an 11.7 mile walk taking in Mucklewick Hill, Black Rhadley Hill, Nipstone Rock, Stiperstones and The Paddock.DanTrig20/06/2020

Trade route from car park - smashing hill.Chris Peart20/04/2018
First beautiful day of Easter holidays, so couldn't resist popping out somewhere. A bit creaky after a winter of pretty much no walking, so a little jaunt up here was quite lovely. Great walk from the car park to the N across Pontesford hill, then a steady ascent up Earl's Hill. Superb views, interesting perspective I haven't seen before, notably the rear of the Breiddens and Long Mountain.tumpawumpa05/04/2018

Free parking on the site shown on the OS map. Easy walk to the top PROVIDED you remember to take the path going off left after about 300m. The site calls it Earl's Hill but the signs on the main road call it Pontesbury Hill.moorsman13/05/2013

Was a very wet and windy day was a lovely ascent to the summit with the dogs which thety thouroughly enjoyed.The ascent took around 1hour to the summit where we had a brief stop to have alook at the view. Decent was slow going as steep incline in the wet olinicki18/02/2012
5th Crimbo Walk with a yet larger group. Started by parking at Oaks. Heading accross the fields to the southermost tip of the hill and ascending along the length. Look for the falls near to Earls Hill. Well wortha visit to this little fairy Glen (especially if you are a wild swimmer) Unfortunately, just after this, one of our mums slipped and broke her leg. This valley is not an easy place to exit a casualty. We laugh now!Steve W24/12/2011
