Parked to west of trig, easily found along bridleway. Not much of a view, lots of heavy growth around trig.

Great views over the gorse and bracken patch, I continue to be amazed how the landscape changes over the years, since this has all grown over the years since the pillar was first installed. Numerous alpaca in fields.

S7675 big scarp slope over the hedge with superb views to the North

Definitely the best of the day. Nice stroll along the bridle way with good views over to the white horse and down the the power stations south of York. Fields full of Alpacas, makes a change from sheep!

Parked in the Balmoral pub in Hustwaite and had a nice stroll up to the trigpoint continued along the track and back down the lanes. Great views up to the White Horse and south to York Minster and three power stations. Was introducing my friend Del to trigpointing although I had been to several in Yorkshire with her before I started logging. Even though she knows the area well she had never been up here just shows that trigpointing can be a great way to explore the countryside. Tried to get a photo with the White Horse in the distance.

Good views from the ridge, but gorse obstructs the views by the pillar. Bagged on a 8 1/2 mile walk from Coxwold.

Fabulous views on short walk from Husthwaite to Trig, plus field containing Alpacas. At trig a gorse hedge blocks view towards White Horse but in the other direction you can see York Minster. Plastic plug.
