From just before the gate onto the moor (SX 6168 9334), room for 4-5 cars. Lovely evening walk up and on to Oke Tor (sadly not on HB) and East Mill Tor, a sub - ah well, they were both lovely hills. A worthwhile 10k round trip.jonglew27/06/2018

Staying in Belstone so did Belstone Tor, East Mill Tor, Hangingstone Hill, Steeperton Tor, Hound Tor and Cosdon Hill. 13.5 miles - just over 5 hours on a lovely November day.clivevilla13/11/2017
An easy fun scramble with L (after lunch with her family) up from Belstone along the spine of this disjointed Stegosaurus tackling all the little rock steps direct. Flook the Pointer lept ahead finding everything 10 times easier than us humans. 'Helped' us up awkward steps by a lick in the face from above. A 2nd ascent for me.Chris Pearson10/07/2017

If travelling to or from Cosdon Hill make sure that you aim for the ford that is shown on the map. The river, at other places, is uncrossable.moorsman19/08/2014
