The Marske Valley is a lovely little dale, its omission from the Yorkshire Dales National Park rather bizarre. The walk up the valley from Marske to Telfit Farm via Orgate Force is quite lovely. From Telfit Farm the trig point can be easily reached using the bridleway to High Greenas.

The view is largely of the moors either side of the valley as well as the eastern side of Marrick Moor and Booze. A few steps to the north of the trig point brings into view a lovely prospect of the upper reaches of the Marske Valley and the remote hamlets of Helwith and Holgate.
