The trig point can be reached fairly easily from the footpath to the north which follows the line of the Bleamoor Tunnel. The path can be accessed from Ribblehead or from Dent Head.
Unsurprisingly the views from the trig point are dominated by Ingleborough and Whernside. Other prominent tops in the view are Great Knoutberry Hill, Baugh Fell and Pen-y-Ghent. To the right of the latter Pendle Hill also appears in the view.
With a good zoom lens it is possible to see the Blea Moor trig point from near the summit of Whernside.
