I parked on the high point of the road and forced a way up the brash and new plantings, all filled with snow - should have used the trackColin Crawford21/02/2020

From Matterdale common. Followed edge of plantation to north edge and easily through new trees to summit. The Mell fells in and out of sunlight. Back to 408 and home. Addendum - just noticed that's Solway Firth to Ambleside compleated. :o)Wycombe Wanderer26/05/2019
Parked at end of Old Coach Road/Lucys wood. Walked up to gate and jumped over as it was locked. Easy bag except for last 50 metres. Follow main track to third clearing on left and try and find a path through the deforestation for 50 metres. Top is obvious. New saplings planted and Wood is presently for sale, so might have access problems later.Jhimmy27/02/2019

10th and final in a round of 10 Birketts and Synges from Dockray, parking by the bridge, room for 4-5 cars. Bracken How, Round How, Common Fell, Watermillock Fell, Swineside Knott, Brown Hills, High Brow, Matterdale Common, Low How and Cocley Moor.jonglew03/10/2017
Part of a circuit of the Deepdale Dodds, starting from Dockray (Note: the National trust car park at NY397221 charges £7.50 for over 6 hrs and the machine does not currently take the new pound coins. Parking for 6 cars can be had in Dockray, opposite the phone box).BobHancock17/09/2017
All the trees on top have now been felled.DARRENG18/07/2017
Quick walk from High Row. Most of the trees have been felled at the momentbenarbia_808/07/2017

Anti-clockwise from the gate, as suggested.Eddie30/04/2016
From High Row on pleasant Autumn day-Cockley Moor(through nature reserve as per Aye Jimmy-but exactly what nature is this reserve for??)-Low Row and High Brow.Good views,especially from last hill.With Oscar.catman09/10/2015

Exactly as Aye Jimmy. Then on to Matterdale Common.Crib Goch30/05/2015
N along road from parking spot at High Row, over gate at Cockley Moor Nature Reserve. Green track to junction, RH track to end of wood at cleared section. Edge of wood followed (amazing moss formations) to tussocky knoll in bay at side of wood. No trees felled here so this must have always been a clearing.Aye Jimmy21/02/2015
Parked alongside access gate by the road north of High Row. Notice stating that the woods are a nature reserve and access is not permitted. Climbed gate and soon out of sight along the good track. If you turn right at the junction access to the summit is across 200m of brash, the detritus of clear-felling. Not a problem but slow progress as the summit is clearly visible. If you turn left, summit access is through a short stretch of easily negotiable trees. Assuming you have the confidence to leave the track at the correct point this is easier. My suggestion is to complete the circle anti-clockwise.moorsman20/06/2014
Used forest track from road north of High Row. Take right fork as height is gained then left by clearfell area. Grassy knoll free of trees is a potential high point. Further investigations not possible due to very thick plantations.GPS gave NY38126 22536 at hig point.mick19/04/2014
In the snow. Easy access from the forestry track.JohnStoneham15/02/2014
W Jenx, parked at road below hill. Nice track into woods and circular. At top end, w good views of Blencathra group and Great Mell, trees felled!, find easy access to high point, grassy mound.nordicstar22/12/2013
With Jo, figure of eight walk from High Row: track onto Cockley Moor (fine views north, south just trees, lots of fungi in wood), then onto Matterdale Common (good all round views). Weather; sunny with high intermittent cloud at first, mizzle later. Very good visibility on tops.amblerbob18/09/2013
Soon into trees and not too bad to find the top - bagging 400m tops at time. Did wonder if anybody else had or would ever come here!Chris Pearson04/06/2004
