very hot day, from Hare Law a bit boggy but fairly easy as I followed a few ATV tracks. I ascended the northern flank watched by a herd of cows. Twin cairns slighty confused me in my heat stroke state - which to choose? Descended NW to Southernknowe and back on the road to Hethpool.Jhimmy25/07/2019
From Hethpool, with Jenx and Bryher. Down the College valley road on foot, super sunny autumn day. Right round to Goldscleugh (could drive here) and direct up Preston hill beside felled plantation. Then the fence line to col, Coldburn Hill then more roughly across to track leading over Hare Law and Newton Tor. Fine views all around, steeply down wall line then fence to Hethpool bridge and car.nordicstar26/09/2017

Coldburn, Hare Law, Newton Tors, West Hill from Hethpool. Afternoon start after nightmare drive from Yorkshire, Great Yorkshire Show plus A1(M) eternal roadworks. Tedious walk up road to just after Southernknowe, then broad grassy track up to shouder. Few hundred metres of rough stuff to top with a couple of cairns. Then back and across to Hare Law.Aye Jimmy12/07/2016
It really saves a lot a time if you purchase a pass to enter the valley. These are available in advance from the estate agent in Wooler (search for ......... pass college valley). This allows parking alongside Coldburn Farm where a tractor track leads up to the col. Under an hour return walk from here.moorsman29/07/2015
