Night walk with Dez and Dan.NottsOutdoorLad08/03/2019
Interesting hill with the Black Rock to explore too. With B and R.jenx14/02/2019
With Jenx and Bryher from free parking by cemetery at Black Rocks. Good paths all way. Scrambly fun on Black Rocks on way back.nordicstar14/02/2019
As others, from cemetery. Straightforward.PGCE23/11/2018
Parked in layby at 290 556, left along the old railway then right up through the lead mine workings and keep going up and right along the ridge.clivevilla04/11/2018
Parked in small layby next to cemetery at SK29013 55616 - Along bridleway (former rail line) to fingerpost & took path signposted Cromford Moor - Up path past old lead mine to trig point & then 20m further on climbed fence to moss covered rock which lies under a clump of brambles about 1m from fence. (S)gerrybowes17/08/2018
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Parked by cemetery. Followed path up and took a wee detour to the rocks where some children were rock climbing, round the old quarry. Pillar sits on a roughly circular rough stone plinth, great wee trig to start the day.thejackrustles06/07/2018
A 2nd visit on a 5 hr walk up from Cromford with L and newly retired Viv and her curly haired cockapoo. Continued to visit once again the National Stone Centre, and its dry stone wall collection, then up the steep incline to visit the old Midleton Top station ( getting unexpected horse racing tips from a local on the way) The Cromford and High Peak railway which skits below Black Rocks is an engineering marvel from 1831 crossing the high Pennines to link the canals either side. Stationary steam engines hauled the trucks up steep inclines.Chris Pearson14/06/2018
Looped around to the summit via the high peak junction, finishing at the trig point, on a freezing dayJoel45129/04/2018
Ascent (and parking) as moorsman. We then followed blue route E over moorland (cleared plantation) to forest road shown on OS map at about SK299556, followed it to bw, then fp, to Intake Lane and Sheep Pasture Incline (now part of the High Peak Trail), which we walked up to return to Black Rock. A 2.5 h walk full of interest, that could easily be extended to include more of the fascinating industrial archaeology in good countryside. With brother, Pete. On fine afternoon after wet, misty morning.pwheeler16/03/2018
If there are any spaces in the layby as you turn into the car park to the NW use these rather than pay for parking (alt 218m). Pass behind the refreshment building and look for a path leading uphill to the right. This leads to the summit trig (the summit itself is over the fence 20m furthjer south). 1.93km return.30 mins. 171m ascent.moorsman10/03/2018
Solo. I parked up the road to avoid car park charge at Black Rocks cp.Dangerous Dave05/03/2018
Parked in large layby by cemetery - parking charges in the CP. Small confusion on entering the old quarry - the path runs up through it so no need to find away around it, like I did... Trig pillar with a number of adornments at the top.jonglew24/01/2018
A day out on the bike bagging hills.simonshrewsbury23/12/2017
Not every day you find a Sri Lankan elephant called Matt sat next to a trig.Alex C21/11/2017

Parked at Black Rocks car park SK 29078 55659. Nice walk through woods to summit.David Evans14/04/2017
Thought I ought to revist to have a look at (and touch) the mossy boulder as I'd only noted the trig from previous visits. The mossy boulder is definitely higher than the ground around the trig. Gorgeous morning the sun shining through misty cloud and a dusting of icy snow. A quick dash up from Black Rock car park before the 09:00 pay and display start time.RichardM29/01/2017
From Black Rocks car park then used the blue trail.garyhoney31/12/2016

From layby opposite car park entrance at SK 29016 55615. Highest point is moss & bramble covered rock on west side of fence 20m SSE of trig at SK 29395 55343 (Abney)David Gradwell02/04/2015
1st of 6 Hills on a loop from Cromford to Matlock Bath. I took Intake lane then branched off taking fp's taking me up and onto the High peak trail. I took a path detouring up and around taking me through Big plantation and a fp took me all to the way up to the trig. I walked up and down the path and took in the boulder on the public access side of the fence. Descent was by the fp running NE and then explored the Black rocks before descending to the car park.Dazingdale14/12/2014
With Becky Cubasvegibagger31/10/2013
Nabbed this on my way back from a meeting in Derby. Almost did it before the meeting, and so glad I didnt as it was very wet and muddy. Not much view today. Very claggy.Flipperfeet19/09/2013
Circular walk from Bolehill village, back via Black Rocks (lot more people here than on summit)Hillsidenick02/11/2012
Walked up old railway incline and walked up slippery paths to trig.DanTrig01/11/2012
Headed up from Bolehill on way to Black Rock.Wheelsy24/06/2012
Park at Black Rock pay and display car park. £1.20 minimum for two hours. Steeply uphill on paths with steps to the edge of a precipice by the red sandstone rock. Path led up to the trig 1716 at 10.20. Large mast. Huge Tarmac quarry spoilt the view SW.arranc16/04/2012

From Black Rocks car park. Nice walk up and good views at the top. Pleasant small hill.The Team10/09/2011
Parked at Black Rocks car park and followed paths up to the trig. The high point is on a boulder to the south of the trig.chriswatson27/04/2011
From Black Rocks car park. Strolled up the dale a bit for easier gradients. Past the trig, and back down the road.malcorbett29/03/2011
Pleasant stroll up from Black Rocks car park. Pleasantly surprised by the spot - though not by the quarry opposite!citygent07/02/2011
Walked up from Black Rocks and through the quarry. Bagging for the sake of this entry, as I've been up many times before!DanHolme18/12/2010
Quick bag via footpath near Lantern Cottage. Temp has risen to a freezing -6c and snow 6 inches deep, still bright sunny lunchtime.Dugswell228/11/2010
When arrived at the top recognised it as had already been there. Had taken a different route! Pleasant walk.destaylor21/01/2010
My closest Hump so I thought I'd better go up. Its actually a nice walk up past Black Rocks and I will be back when the weather's cold. I think the top is not at the trig but 20M south on a rock under brambles just over the fence.simon and co25/09/2009
