From Quickbeam Hill. Followed a series of stone boundary markers on a rough path SSW to the summit cairn. Descent to Shipley Bridge via Ball Gate and RoW NE to the lane. Solo.Man of Kernow103/05/2019

Absolutely huge pile of stones- This must ahve been a busy place in the bronze age and the effort involved-possibly over a long period of time- must have been massive. Trig is lower than the highest pile. Rough track along ridgeline from Quickbeam hill, then easy descent to carpark at Harford in sticky heat.Denise 18/06/2017
3/4 Short but sharp circuit in Dartmoor Ryder's Hill/Quickbeam Hill/Ugborough Barrow/Stall Down BarrowFergalh07/06/2015
Parking at Shipley Bridge. Easiest route is to take in Quickbeam Hill first as the path off Ugborough is easier in descent.moorsman23/08/2014
My last hill climbed from the Two moors way, On this leg I walked from Widecombe in the moor to Ivybridge. And managed to leave my map case near Hangershell rock. I had climbed Quickbeam from the tramway and now I left my rucksack near some old workings and sheep and headed off up past what looked like old fortifications. The rocks on this hill look so clean and new and yet they have been in place for hundreds of years. I visited all three cairns. The trig poing being next to the middle of the three and lower than the cairn walls. The amount of rock used to construct the barrows is amazing!! You have to be careful on the descent and ascent as there are many hollows to negotiate probably caused by tin mining activity.Dazingdale26/03/2014
9 mile walk bagging Ugborough Moor, Ugborough Beacon and Butterdon Hill trig. Hot and sunny all day.DanTrig23/07/2012
4 hr 4 top circuit in rain. From Quickbeam 4 km run along the flooded railway track to Ugborough Moor (Darren using his GPS) only slightly awkward river crossing (not a torrent as feared) then steeply up to big cairn on Stalldown BarrowChris Pearson11/08/2010
