Parking to the south just before the gate which marks the start of the open moor. Signposted path which is both easy to follow and leads to the summit. About 25 minutes return.moorsman04/08/2017

With Mrs G. After Long Crag, a heather-fest! Tough return route also over Black Moss and Snitter Moss, along old boundary. Picked up 7 boundary stones before rejoining the forest road. A very wet day, but no wind.jonglew12/10/2016
Farm track from W which now has a couple of 'Private no Access' signs. Took a line through gates and fields beside wood instead. Heather has been cleared in places on upper hill but can't avoid it all.Aye Jimmy24/04/2016
