From Blakehope Burn picnic site. To Street Head then tracks like Carole E.Moorponder17/10/2019
Heathery atv from forest boundary NY 7366 9828 a gift compared to some of the trigs in this area.carole engel30/07/2019
As AJ. Took advantage of AJ's overgrown ATV track which is just discernable a few metres south of the double gates which made this one of the easiest bags I have done in this area - well under an hour return. AJ's rocky tor is quite a striking feature and on a better day would be a good bait or coffee stop - it was blowing a hoolie today!Crib Goch21/02/2019
Forest drive then parked at NY 7366.9911 just before locked barrier. Easy track S to gate at top near Street Head with 'Kennel Club' notice board (strange place to put it). Rough heathery track just inside forest to summit, an embedded rock in heather to S of fence. Rocky tor 25m S, delightful spot to contemplate the meaning of life. As a bonus, overgrown quad track leads back to the gate, well away from the forest.Aye Jimmy14/08/2016
An excellent viewpoint but a very little visited summit. The picnic and parking site at Blackblakehope are no longer available but parking possible just north at the track junction with the forest drive (alt 908 ft). Stick to the forest road as far as Stile Grain. Continue along the track to the bridleway where you can turn left and follow it through a forest clearing. If you can spot it, there is a public footpath running NW through the forest clearing that you pass. This short cuts to (almost) the summit. If you miss it, just continue to the fence. About 20m south of the fence is a vehicle track which goes to the summit avoiding the ankle bending tussocky ground. You will see the missed waymarked footpath easily as you return!moorsman01/08/2015
