The easiest way to reach the Rye Loaf trig point is from near the top of the bridleway connecting Stockdale Lane with Cove Road above Malham. The trig point shares the small summit area of Rye Loaf Hill with a large sprawling cairn.
The 360 degree panorama from the trig point is exceptional, not only does it incorporate the Three Peaks but also an extensive view south that includes Pendle Hill and the Bowland Fells.
Closer to hand are the neighbouring tops of Grizedales and Kirkby Fell whilst a few steps away from the trig point reveals a bird’s eye prospect of Stockdale.
