The trig point can be reached fairly easily from the footpath to the north which follows the line of the Bleamoor Tunnel. Unsurprisingly the views from the trig point are dominated by Ingleborough and Whernside. With a good zoom lens it is possible to see the Blea Moor trig point from near the summit of Whernside.
