Parked by houses on west of summit. Steep paths up to transmitter and on to summit.Argentum6624/10/2019
Parked in lay-by just E of boulder bearing the words ‘The Howe’. Walked a circuit of the track to the mast and to the bracken summit mound beyond (although the nearer mound 30 yards S of the mast looked equally high) and back via the war memorial.Nick Down131/08/2019

Bagged on a Sunday afternoon stroll between Danny and Castleton Moor station. Summit a hundred yards south of the mobile phone mast.mrs_ts707/04/2019
Easy-paced linear walk Commondale Station to Danby on a warm Sunday morning. Easy navigation up hill, good views from the top: worth the effort.JOHNS02/09/2018
Up the west side from the minor road initially to some mattress that I'd aimed fir assuming that was the summit but it was higher area about 50 metres to the south. Best view of Castleton from these west doors of the hillvegibagger21/04/2018

With Jo, easy stroll up Howe Bank from parking space by Eller Stang Bridge, then track to mast and then onto top. Weather; sunny, nice breeze, with good visibility.amblerbob03/08/2016
Walked up from the north with Darren, then a few moments of reflection at the war memorial on the way down. The 35 mile Esk Valley railway runs close by linking the city of Middlesborough with the coastal town of Whitby via 18 rural stations. Used by tourists and locals / commuters and children going to school in Whitby. The Saturday evening train is sensibly 'dry'(no alcohol)-presmuably after drunken'incidents?' Oddly however the opposite is encouraged on the Friday night 'Music and Ale' train?. A Community Rail development group has formed to promote the use by locals and tourists of the railway. One of their strategies is to publish 'tranquility maps' (produced by Northumbria Uni for the whole of Britain) to publicise quiet areas best accessed by train not car. Pearson28/07/2016

Parked near war memorial cross, and boulder with 'The Howe' on it. Up lane 80m then track led off up to mast. No wading through bracken - much of it on top was extremely dead, nothing growing (poisoned?).Aye Jimmy24/07/2014
Five minute walk up a track and then wading through the brackenphilos18/06/2014
From NE, parking just S of first houseRHW09/11/2013
Verge parking to the SW by the gate with numerous well mown paths to the summit. Quite a decent viewpoint.moorsman07/09/2013
Small rough lay-by near war memorial at NZ 69424 07985. We took the public footpath south for a short way then a track on the right that leads to a chicken compound as it gently ascends the hillside. Passing a mobile phone mast, a good path through the dead bracken carries on south for c200 metres. The obvious highest point was off the path in the dead bracken about 20 metres east of the spot height at NZ 69343 07624.David Gradwell27/10/2010
