Surprising little hill with stunning views. Parked at small parking area with view point and walked up road, through the gate marked with a footpath sign and around houses to top. Absolutely beautiful stop and well worth calling in when crossing the pennines. 15 mins, but spent 15 more just looking at the views!Nicky C13/08/2021

Plentiful parking around the village green (alt 169m). Walk up the dead-end road and turn left on the signposted footpath. When it reaches the first (open) gate go through a small gate on your left and head diagonally right across the field to the stile giving access to the summit area. 620m return, 10 minutes.moorsman26/07/2020
4/6 From Warcop, Vicarage Bank, Trickle Banks, Sourlands Hill, Great Musgrave Hill, Thorny Hill and Huber Hill. Used the Pennine Journey and other footpaths to link these six together, made a nice 5 hour round. Bit slick with mud in a few places.nickywood118/01/2020

Start of a day walk with Darren around the 'Warcop Seven'(tumps). We met a a retired couple walking their dog who now live here -both retired police officers form my home city of Sheffield. They were surprised to see anyone walking around here, and word spread, as on our return a man who was voluntarily giving the village seat its 5 yearly re-varnish(which prevented me from sitting on it to wait for D who was taking photos) had heard all about us. He told us the recent placement of a commemorative stone to the Queen / view indicator had taken 15 years to set up -as things worked slowly here on 'Musgrave time'.Chris Pearson29/07/2016
