The Fleak trig point is an example of one of the stone built trig points as opposed to one of the more commonly seen concrete versions. The view is mainly of the high moors above Wensleydale and Swaledale with Summer Lodge Tarn well seen just to the north.

The trig point is situated quite close to the summit of the Askrigg – Reeth road making it one of the easier trig points to bag. That is of course if you a) confident enough to tackle the steep narrow road and b) can find somewhere suitable to pull over.
