The Gragareth Fell trig point is on the Lancashire side of the county boundary that runs along the top of the fell. The trig point does not quite stand at the highest point of Gragareth. In April 2014 a surveying team measured a slightly higher point 100m east of the trig point which resulted in Gragareth replacing neighbouring Green Hill as the county top of Lancashire.

The easiest way to reach the trig point is via the Three Men of Gragareth, a set of three cairns above the end of the road leading to Leck Fell House. The view includes neighbouring fells such as Calf Top, Great Coum and Whernside.
