From the ruined Hartside cafe. What a shame it has not been rebuilt! Up by the grouse butts on the way out. Back more direct via the stone man. Head to back corner of car park to find start of both trails. Chilly! With B and R.jenx28/09/2019
An early evening walk from the former Hartside café, over Fiend's Fell, Little Knapside Hill and Knapside Hill, whose shelter cairn had been a sighting mark from the start, to the little row of candidate summit cairns North of the main cairn on Melmerby Fell. The setting sun was my companion on the walk back.Nick Down128/03/2019

From Hartside.Winterfloodian09/08/2017
Was staying at Melmerby so started there.Took the track from GR 6148 3767 to 6129 4009. Took mainly roads to Renwick. Pleasant climb up to Thack Moor, Watch Hill and Black Fell and then down to Hartside where I had some lunch. Fiends fell and then Little Knapside Hill and then picked up the path at GR 6366 3834 which was a pleasant walk.tsharp06/07/2017

Walked on my own from Melmerby. using walk c430 after Melmerby Fell. Glorious sunshine with a pleasant breeze. Enjoyed the walk to this fell from Melmerby Fell. A little wet in places but no problem bogs to contend with. Good views and a good path back to Melmerby.flockwatcher16/08/2016

East from Hartside Cafe along the A686 for 1.2Kms to single derelict house on the north side of the road then opposite down green lane to join Maiden Way roman road by wood. SSW to Megs Cairn then over Melmerby Fell (Dun Edge), Knapside Hill, Little Knapside Hill to Fiends Fell and back to Hartside with Mary.Glenelg27/06/2015
Walked up from Hartside for the YSM.Walker Dan24/06/2015
Solo. Done twice on there and back to Cross Fell from Hartside Cafe.Aimless Rambler26/05/2015
To the north west of Melmerby Fell lay Knapside Hill and a clear track, so I decided that this would be the better return route and would avoid a second wade. The snow was intermittent on the ridge and this was the easiest walking of the day. The only obstacle came where the ground dipped sharply before rising again to Fiends Fell, and I had to pick my way carefully round the east of the hollow to avoid sinking into snow.peter4lc25/02/2015
Parked at Hartside Cross on the A686 Penrith to Alston road south on course of Old Tramway to area of old mines where the tramway ends at a river valley Aglionby Beck. Then followed a line past mine workings to the top of Melmerby Fell 709m marked as Dun Edge. Headed NW across nice grassy top to Knapside Hill and ate lunch in the shelter of the large cairn. Then north to Little Knapside Hill and Fiends Fell. 634m and down to the pass. Continued tstraight across to Black Fell as we had plenty of time. Snowed briefly when we got back to the car.axe.stephen16/02/2015
Spectacular sunset over the Lakes.PeteF28/12/2014
Via Stone Man and trig, from cafe, with Alexander.agentmancuso05/08/2014
Another clear warm day, jogged up from Hartside cafe. No obvious direct line, so went left (East) after second gate to line of grouse butts. Followed these then ATV track to summit. Cairn and trig. Great views, and clear. Criffel in distance. ATV track leads more directly to stone man and then to near start point - hidden line through reeds or may have seen to go up that way. 30 min round trip running.nordicstar28/07/2014
Very easy stroll on a nice grassy track from Hartside cafe. Surely one of the easiest 2000ft'ers in England? Very pleasant top.Jake99425/07/2014

With Jo, two walks from Hartside Cross. In morning followed fence to Benty Hill (excellent views down the Gilderdale Valley), and then in afternoon to Fiend’s Fell. Weather; generally sunny with high intermittent clouds, warm, good visibility.amblerbob26/05/2014
Here for the trigpoint, Pasturehouse Farm, before I even new about hill bagging, only went as far as trigpoint so summit not reached. TP:UK log: Journeyed on up from the cache at the cairn up to the trig point, very cold and windy up here today but worth it for the viewthejackrustles08/04/2014
Gentle walk from Hartside once you've located the track. Summit seems to be three stones about 15m from a larger cairn and some distance from a trig point.Aye Jimmy10/09/2013

Across from Melmbury Fell via Knapside (which was more impressive than either of them) and then on to Hartside Cafe for a delicious hot beef bap.tsharp21/08/2012
Nuttalls 9.2: a walk in mist, and I didn't turn off Maiden Way in the right place; but the tops were found. A very welcome cuppa and cake at the Hartside cafe afterwards.ruthatlast14/10/2011
