Despite the fairly modest height of Cave Hill it is a fine viewpoint for upper Ribblesdale. The panorama includes the likes of Simon Fell, Park Fell, Whernside, Cam Fell and Cosh Knott. The main summit missing from the view is Ingleborough which is completely hidden from view by Simon Fell.
The trig point can be easily reached by a short pathless climb of only a few minutes from the Pennine Way which curves around the side of Cave Hill.
