Great top. From High Peaks Trail where it was clearly signposted. Full day running from Cromford to Matlock (35k) with hill tops inc Harboro Rocks, Longcliffe Hill, Slipper Low, Minninglow Hill, Blake Low, Blakelow Hill, Masson Hill. With L1bby.Fionalevey14/08/2018
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Struggled a tad to get to this as the water board had blocked the road near N53° 05.551' W1° 39.024' and we had to do a big detour. Great spot, shame about the plant below but you could ignore that. Could see this would be a popular climbing spot. Very hot by now, scorching to be honest!thejackrustles06/07/2018

Small parking area 50m east of where the summit footpath meets the road to the south (alt 326m). A well waymarked path leads from the road to the summit.moorsman10/03/2018

Parking: For both Harboro Rocks and Longcliffe Hill, good sized layby SK 24322 54872. Julie had a sit-down in the stone 'chair' on Harboro Rocks.David Evans14/04/2017
A run in the snow from Carsington, via the non-existent footpaths in the works above Harboro Farm, to bag Harboro rocks. Probably done it before whilst climbing but just checking. Then the High Peak Trail and Limestone way to Longcliffe Hill. A couple of walls and barbed wire fences to contend with, but the electric fence is non-functional. Not the most exciting hill in the world. Back via HPT, and a fab bum slide into Carsington to cap it off.Gill11/02/2017
Short walk from S. Interesting summit of limestone outcrops.RobertP11/12/2016
With Penda, from home, via Carsington and Brassington, then on to Longcliffe Hill and Harboro Rocks and back via Carsington. 4h 45m. Been here many times, but wasn't aware it was a Tump until recently. Fabulous 360 degree views as always.beorwulf25/10/2016

Along Pennine Bridleway. Super little hill. Very easy. Derby Mountain Rescue were carrying out an exercise when I was there. Helicopter, ambulance etc. At least I hope it was just an exercise...trimarc207/08/2016

From layby/parking area on minor road to south at SK 24333 54840. Couple of private signs before reaching access land but good path through them all the same! Cave to left of path at SK 24220 55227 worth a tiny detour. My brother Ed (who's an expert in these matters) give it score of 7 out of 10 for general darkness! Highest point is rock outcrop 18m SE of trig at SK 24279 55330 (Abney)David Gradwell02/04/2015

One of many visits to this one, came off the High Peak Trail this time. Some outstanding views here.timday04/03/2014
Accessed off Pennine Bridleway. I started at Middleton top having already walked up from Middleton by Wirksworth. I had intended to start the White to Dark trail but needed to get off the bus as i was dying for the toilet so I started the Pennine Bridleway instead! Weather was great all day and this looks like a good trail to branch off occasionally to explore the higher ground at various points. I ended up at Sparklow and then ran to Bakewell in order to catch the Transpeak bus back to Nottingham. There is a cave at Harboro rocks.Dazingdale02/03/2013
Walked up incline and along old railway, 2nd visit, last time in 2005. Part of a 15 mile walk.DanTrig01/11/2012
