Circular route from Frosterley. This trig is located on an exposed part of Pikestone Fell just south of the Weardale Way. An abundance of frogs in the forgotten quarry and alongside the Bollihope Burn.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in good condition.

Parked at Allotment House and walked up. Once onto the access land the path disappears so have to hack across the heather and bog.
