The Park Fell trig point is well placed for a fine panorama of upper Ribblesdale, a view that is enhanced by the fact that the valley and not just the surrounding fells are in view. Of course there are plenty of hills in view too including Pen-y-ghent, Plover Hill, High Green Field Knott, Blea Moor, Whernside and Simon Fell.
The trig point can be reached by a fairly steep climb up from Gauber Road via the houses at Colt Park. Alternatively it can be visited on the descent of the hugely enjoyable ridge walk from Ingleborough over Simon Fell.
Another option is to take the track from Low Sleights Road passing Fell Close Rocks before contouring round to a wall that leads up on to Park Fell. Follow the wall up to reach a path on the ‘edge’ of Park Fell. Turn left and follow this to a stile which gives access to the trig point.
