The trig point is easy to reach via the landrover track that crosses Masham Moor just to the north of the trig point. Unfortunately it was a hot and hazy summer’s day when I visited this trig point in 2006 so it is difficult to assess the view. Easily the most striking object that can be seen is the tall sighting tower that is situated a mile away to the north.
