From Hailshowers Fell. Quite rough- going along boggy grassy ridge/ fenceline to Trig next to HP- area SE within contour just lower. Nice breezy sunny day. Returned via a more direct route to Bowland Knotts -easier despite up and down.Denise 24/08/2019
From Keasden Road cattle grid. Continued along ridge to Burn Moor and back. NNick Caunt17/07/2019
Train along the delightful Little North Western route to Bentham for a walk via Fourstones and up via the grouse shooting lodge whereupon I met a local couple out walking - in many years they'd never met anyone walking up Burn Moor. Slightly nervously I carried on, to the south side of the fence and just past the summit trig, climbed over the fence to follow the syke down to West Borronhead (keep to the west of the fence), wonderful views of Ingleborough et al interrupted by a huge growth of ferns across the path. A walk via footpaths and road to Keasdon and back to Clapham station for the train home.JOHNS07/07/2019
Trig pillar S5003 picked out with a hint of yellow. Phew that the ground 300m ESE is just a bit lower.vegibagger08/12/2018
Walked from Kearsden, first of 3 along the border ridge.IanHHill28/08/2018
From Hailshowers Fell. Bit boggier now, fell in a few holes. Paused at summit for a couple of minutes to admire Whernside and Ingleborough and give thanks. Returned to road at Bowland Knotts (which looks more impressive from this direction). 2.5 hoursWycombe Wanderer11/08/2018
After Bowland Knotts and Hailshowers Fell. Concur with previous entry. A hard walk in the heather even in the dry. Cut the corner on the way back. More heather but saved half hour. Not a good idea in wetLongwojo23/06/2018

Solo. Parked about 100 mtrs down Petersbottom Lane. Followed vehicle track to shooting box (the O.S. designation doesn't do it justice, it's a substantial dwelling). From there continued on an ATV track (not shown on O.S. map) that leads to the trig pt. Excellent views from the summit. A good one. 66 mins.ADT05/04/2018
This, Hailshowers and Bowland Knotts, a hard walkbardolph22/05/2017
Swampy watershed not shedding very well after a night of rain. Bowland Knotts- Hailshowers Hill- Burn Moor. The middle km of alternating swamp and trackless heather almost being worthy of a typical leg on the Karrimor (OMM). Descent N was actually nice - firm ground and then a grassy track with sunny views ahead of Ingleborough. 14 mile walk with L from Eldroth cottage.Chris Pearson28/10/2016

Parking available at the junction with the road and Petersbottom Lane (alt 850 ft). Follow this to the end of the wall. If you turn left and head up to the shooting house you will pick up a track leading all the way to the summit. 3.11 easy miles Just over an hour.moorsman23/10/2015
From Bowland Knotts road top to Clapham station after CMC reunion meet - showery day.Smudge02/08/2015
From WNW, lane to Croasdale Grains farm. Branched off lane up past shooting hut then a very pleasant amble at gentle angle all the way to a trigpoint on top. Continued a few hundred metres to another bump of similar height with prominent tuft of reeds on skyline (actually in a pond) - just in case...Aye Jimmy30/03/2014
