Walked from Lindale as a local to home walk during Coronavirus. Over Hampsfell and back over Hampsfell in my attempt to climb that 100 times.nickywood118/04/2020
A lot of logging operations in progress. Best to go on a Sunday when no one is working for the next few months.DC11main26/01/2020

From good parking at 36295 79181, the road end is not so good and potentially obstructs the farm. Cut down direct off Barnard Hill to this parking point too, after using the lanes to gain Ellerside and its companion trig, through the col to gain Barnard via gates. Rebuilt the wall near summit after some poor climber had caused a collapse ;) Summit looked out in the field to menordicstar13/01/2019
After Ellerside. Took a direct line from a junction of tracks (SD 3589 7895). Woodland HP investigated first (had to nip over a stone wall), then checked out a HP contender at SD 36214 78780, overlooking the farm.jonglew02/12/2018

1st of 9 tumps on a 33.37km route from Cark station to Ulverston, using road past Holker Hall entrance then minor lane to reservoir, track to conifer plantation then forest track to access summit area recording 154m in amongst the trees at SD 36204 78719 and SD 36195 78724- also hopping over the wall to explore the highest ground in the open field with nice views. Back to highest point inside the woodland next to the pine trees then onwards to Ellerside...Dazingdale30/03/2018

Up from Cark, easy peasy with tracks going close to the top. Dropped down the steeper NW side to pick up the track going to How Barrow. From Cartmel this hill appears quite prominent, the woods atop making it easily identifiable.Jake99421/12/2014
Excellent parking at SD363775. At SD363783 continue on bridleway for 50m then turn L on vehicle track. This goes to pheasant feeding area adjacent to the summit.jimbloomer01/11/2013
