The trig point is closely surrounded by an old crumbling stone shelter. It stand more towards the southern end of the top of Warrendale Knotts with a grand view straight back down into Settle. There is also a fine view of Rye Loaf Hill and Stockdale.

The views up Ribblesdale are good but are even better from the cairn at the northern end of the summit. Although the trig point is currently listed on the British Database of Hills as the summit of Warrendale Knotts I have a feeling that the cairn is higher.
