The Cow Close Fell trig point sits on a stone base in an area of eroded peat. It is instantly recognisable as it there is no other trig point in the Yorkshire Dales that looks quite like it.
It is not the easiest trig point to reach, perhaps the simplest route being to approach from the Dawson Close track to the north. Even then it requires a pathless climb up rough moorland and a careful climb over a barbed wire fence. The summit is too broad and peaty for it to be a particularly good viewpoint.
