The summit is a grassy knoll unmarked except for lots of rabbit poo and a wall passing a few metres to the south. The view is excellent, as good as that from Barbon Low Fell and in some ways is even better as it includes a fantastic view up the upper reaches of Barbondale.

Hoggs Hill can be easily bagged either from the Barbondale – Bullpot bridleway to the east, the track leaving Fell Road to the south or via a path through the bracken from Bents Lane to the west.
