The view east is largely obscured by the higher ground of Hazelwood Moor, similarly to the north it is dominated by Barden Moor. The finest prospect is to the south-west where Skipton Moor, Weets Hill, Pendle Hill, and even Longridge Fell, all appear in a long line.

The trig point can easily be reached via a short detour from the permissive path from Bolton Park Farm just before it passes through Hammerthorn Gate. If visiting the trig point it is worth the extra few minutes walk to South Nab and the superb view down to the River Wharfe and Bolton Abbey.
