Despite being one of the youngest trig points in the Yorkshire Dales its lichen covered countenance makes the Nettle Hill trig point seem rather older. Adding to this sense of age is the rather tumble down stone shelter that surrounds the trig point.
The view is quite extensive for the fairly modest elevation. The Howgills are well seen to the south, to the east is Nine Standards Rigg and to the north the Cross Fell range of the North Pennines.
