Area for a couple of cars on grass at bend in road (NU 014 213). Took FP across first field to access land (difficult cows roaming on access land). Then up ATV track to near trig on summit of Heddon Hill. This takes one down to the bridleway and onto farm access road past Dod farm to the ford (good FB for walkers). Once over cattle grid took another ATV track north to close to summit of Dod Hill. 10km there and back with 300m ascent in 2h20m. (S)silveracorn_alan24/10/2020
Verge parking at start of footpath, south of Ilderton, then grassy tracks for much of the wayColin Crawford22/03/2019
Parking available at Whaupmoss Plantation to the east (alt 193m). Road walk north then west, taking the stoned path all the way to the second bridleway by the sheep pens. From here a track leads all the way to the summit. Couldn't locate the first bridleway as it was lost in tussock bogs.moorsman31/07/2017
