From Lecket Hill there is an ATV track and then an intermittent track to the summit. It is best to do this after a dry spell as the boggy areas could be tedious. Solo.bolton20/05/2023
From the car park on B822 (Crow road. Car park busy with dog walkers, double decker bus and plenty of people wielding cameras.. I followed the Cort ma law loop walk up to Cort ma law trig point and then spurred of to the the east top. On to Lecket hill and back to the car park. The route was extremely boggy in lots of places. Started off sunny but the wind was strong and the predicted rain arrived to ensure it was wet!Buck03/02/2023
