This stone built trig point is situated on the south side of a broken down wall and fence. These partially obscure the view which is perhaps most extensive to the east towards Leyburn. For much better views of Wensleydale it is worth making the short detour north to the top of Penhill Scar.
The Penhill trig point can easily be reached either via the path zig-zagging up through Black Scar to the west or via one of the paths climbing to Penhill End from the east.
