From same parking spot as for Arnside Knott. RoW on SW side of Arnside Tower (ruins), then unmapped path follows SW side of stone wall to a gate (SD 4610 7662), whence mapped tracks through scrub. Nice little escarpment runs along N side of the HP.jonglew11/03/2017
From the caravan site to SW, good parking near reception, then easy lanes lead up to old quarry area just 100m from summit area, a wall to cross then to flatish spot marked as summit crowded by a few treesnordicstar11/02/2017
From Eaves Wood car park via Pepperpot. Once through the County boundary wall access is about 150 yards on the right through easy gap in the wall. Then a short easy walk on limestone to top in thick trees a few yards short of quarry edge. With Andy Paul and Alf.mick19/11/2016

From Arnside Tower.bevandy11404/10/2016
Walked from Haverbrack Bank then followed top edge (sometimes rather too closely) of huge quarry up from NE with Darren. Exciting stuff of alternating between being on the edge on 'wrong' side of wire fence or pushing through the trees on the safe side. Led directly to wooded limestone pavement plateau where we explored this lost world covering possible highpoints. Descended the way we came but finding a sketchy path through the trees. Then onwards on our 6 tump circuit to Trowbarrow.Chris Pearson30/07/2016
As others from NT car park to SE (free).David Gradwell04/02/2016

Arnside to Silverdale via Yealand Storrs. Approach as per Bramley then descent into Eaves Wood via pedestrian gate practically due S of summit.Smudge11/10/2015
Entered Eaves Wood from Old Waterslack Farm. Thrashed through to every perceivable higher ground. Summit area is attractively wild.summitsup18/09/2015
From S, parked in village near Methodist Church then E a bit to path north. Gap in County Wall a bit ESE of summit. Gap in subsequent wall leads to flattish summit area, HP by an oak tree I reckoned. Subsequently found NT car park SE of summit at road jn, presumably the easiest wayRHW05/09/2015

From SW, walked through extensive caravan park until f/p led out at top. Path through Eaves Wood keeping a wall to the L, through gate until a stile with tiny gate appears in wall to L. Through this, along another wall to a gap and not far away small limestone pavement. Top hereabouts. About 50m to the E is a huge drop into a quarry...Aye Jimmy15/08/2014
Walked through farm selling christmas trees to Arnside Tower with Martin Richardson. Then walked through caravan park on footpath to wood in limestone country. You have to climb a locked gate or wall before the flattish limestone pavement and trees with nest boxes around the summit.Dugswell208/12/2013
It rained despite the weather forecast to the contrary. Also a place to play the game of 'guess the top'. Shame about all the Willerbys.Martin R08/12/2013
Followed walls from footpath above the holiday park up into the woods. The summit is heavily overgrown a bit away from the quarry edge. I think this is the only time I've wished a summit was on the edge of a quarry as it would probably improve it.Jake99407/04/2012
On the way to Silverdale, traversed this hill after coming down from Arnside Knott. Across limestone pavements, cave hunting, then down to the pepperpot.DanHolme13/09/2005
