Located not far within the north-eastern boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Hoove is one of the lonely moorland tops above Arkengarthdale. The trig point is not quite the highest point of the fell, this lies about 480m to the south-west on ground approximately 1.4m higher than the trig point.
