As Aye Jimmy. The firebreak near 6454,9291 is difficult to spot until you are actually in it. Two large boulders in the track at that GR indicate the spot where you leave it and head very steeply into the trees - the firebreak soon becomes obvious.Crib Goch14/02/2019
Cycled from Butteryhaugh bridge to NY 6600 9400, leaving the bridleway at NY 658 911 then turning left at NY 666 928. 350m from bike to summit. Decent views.mae20/08/2018
Easy roadside parking on an access track south of Butteryhaugh (alt 200m). Take the forest road until it crosses a stream. Turn left (NW) here and follow a stoned track through the trees until it reaches a wall. Turn right until you reach a forest road alongside an information board at Castle Hill. The area ahead has been cut down and is morass of brash. An alternative is to walk NE then SE to rejoin the path again. Walk 300m along it until it is blocked by trees, but a good path leads SE. At a bend look for the path to the fire-tower. It exists though the start is difficult to find. After the fire tower there is a path to the summit but it keeps to the edge of the trees on your left, not in the centre of the fire break. 7.86km return 2 hrs 30 mins. 393m of ascentmoorsman09/05/2018
Quick out to Pike Knowe, Grey's Pike and the trig from Wainhope bothy in winter.Eddie29/11/2017
From near Butteryhaugh Bridge. Into forest at NY 6336.9263, up short way then worked up R to track junction at Osprey MTB noticeboard 6377.9282. Track NE then SE to Devil's Lapful. Across brash to firebreak near 6454.9291. This leads past fire tower on Three Pikes trail, very soggy after previous day's deluge. First hill has trig, second has heather, third is Pike Knowe summit with cairn under Xmas tree.Aye Jimmy15/09/2016
Training runs for 2011 Kielder Marathonbutteryhaugh03/04/2011
Walked up from Kielder Castle through trees and snow filled rides. No sign of any path, although the book says there is one. Continued on over Three Pikes and back along the forest road from East Kielder. Pretty wet in places. Pleased the previous visitor enjoyed it. Good in parts only for us.Walker Dan07/03/2010
