Circuit with Whinny Nab (protected by electric fencing, even on gate). Parking on track from west. Track from SW continues via narrow path to summit and along short ridge. Drop down to track over bracken and bilberry. Forest crossing a bit rough to well-used track thru' wood to Whinny Nab.carole engel26/12/2018
Unusual looking hill- obvious domed mound with heather and bilberry ridge on top. Nice views on a snowy clear day. NT/ Access landDenise 04/12/2017
Access land. Up steep heathery slope on N side, path through bracken and billberry along ridge top. Great views on a sunny day. Back to Horcum carpark via Old Wife's Way.RichardM04/12/2017
£1.00 for 2 hours in the snowy car park then onward to Horcum trig then Whinny Nab before an easy route to Blakey Topping using the snow covered forest track. Back via the farm and snow free track back to car park with Smudge.Dugswell202/12/2017
A fairly intensive 2-hours walk mainly through fresh snow (would probably have taken 2.5hrs if farm track hadn't been ploughed).Smudge02/12/2017
Great little hill and good view too.stever07/06/2017
From very end of the valley to the SE it's still quite a trek of a km and a half and found care needed on tagging the valley bottom topology and paths correctly. Eventually one pass the final house and up round the corner and the impressive cone,looking like a small volcano, comes into view,but still over a km away. A garner with very broad Yorkshire accent I'd clipping some sheep in a pen. Wonder if he's sharing them, then notice that he's just clipping them round their rear quarters. 'Just clipping them ready for tupping. Makes them more accessible!' A new meaning of that word I've not imagined before!vegibagger29/10/2016
From west, parking at start or £1 for 2hrs in main car park. Nice two tump circuit to complete N Yorks and Section 37RHW02/04/2016
From the Malo Cross and through Newgate Foot Farm. Easily accessible from the Blakey Rigg forest track too - avoids the farm. NT Access Land. Dogs welcome on a lead.Dangerous Dave17/03/2016

From Saltergate. Just before Newgate Foot Farm took f/p up-valley, crossed through cut pines (a mistake) to approach hill from back - should have been bold and gone through farmyard. Summit ridge bracken covered. Continued to Whinny Nab via Malo Cross.Aye Jimmy10/06/2014

One of the very few hills that, from the most convenient access point (Saltergate car park) you have to go downhill to reach the summit! The route through Newgate Foot farm is not shown as a path because legally it is a public road. Look for a stile giving easy access up the hill.moorsman29/07/2013
