Fab walk up from Yorkshire Bridge. Right at the bottom of the road then left after the gate. Straight up. Just keep going straight till you cant go straight no more, then its right and straight up again. Self explanatory from there and it comes into view 3/4 way up the 'peak'. Nice bit of cardio early morning- 0.75 miles straight UP UP UP. Then towards the reservoir and back out of the mist, down the left side of the res back to the car.

PathFinder Guide - Peak District Walks (2009): Winhill & Thornhill. Been up here numerous times before and will no doubt do so again in the future. Never approached from Thornhill before though. This is also the first time I've used my new toy to record the grid ref for one of these objects of desire !! Win Hill, Mam Tor and Stanage Edge are probably my most visited pillars as they are just such great places to go when I only have a few hours to spare. Weather closed in just as I got to the top and Hope cement works was belching out plenty of smoke too. Had a nice chat with a fellow walker and his friendly dog before descending back to Ladybower.

First things first. If you are new to Trigging, or new to Trigging in the Dark Peak, I suggest you head up Win Hill with a pen and notepad. From the top you can plan your next dozen or so days out. Brilliant. Getting there? Meh! Used my old fell running round trip starting from the car park by the bridge at the western end of Ladybower. Problem 1: Now gated! (I've no real gripe about anglers, but rules, rules, rules. Always rules!) Then along the south bank. After the recent downpours the reservoir starts really early making the upper reaches look like a grand, broad downstream river. Now I always had problems deciding when to clench my teeth and head uphill through the plantation. Too many dead end paths. It's even worse now, with fresh logging and new plantings. So, not actually "lost", but a struggle. Understandable. But again, on the way down, turning back into the coniferous darkness at Hope Cross, futher unnecessary thrutchings.

Came up to bag the Monica (HuMP) as well as the trig and a nearby cache. Came up the steep path through the woods from the east having parked near the dam. Had dropped son off at Sheffield Uni for an interview but decided against going to lots of talks for parents on finances etc. Knew it was going to cost him a fortune which ever way you look at it. Nice trig by the way.

My first trig of 2012. A revisit to record FB details and take some snaps as I'd not developed the trigging bug on my first visit up here. A good winters day for walking - clear blue skies, not a breath of wind but a nice chill in the air. Just a shame about the haze today. Great 360 views from this location across to Derwent Edge and Mam Tor amongst others.

Steep climb up Parkin Clough. I was with a slow walking group, so I ran halfway down and climbed up again. It was a nice sunny day, so the top was quite busy. But the views are worth it. 2nd visit. The first was a couple years ago, when the summit was covered in snow.

Plastic plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. The Pike is a rocky crest making an excellent trigpoint. Straightforward walk up from Hope station on good paths. The steep & wooded descent to Yorkshire Bridge presents no problems in the dry, but could be tricky when wet.

Parked on side road, crossed Yorkshire Bridge, turned right then turned left onto steep path beside stream which eventually leads you out of woods and on to summit. Area of bedrock appears higher than trig. Busy hard earned top.

Came up from Ladybower Reservoir using some of the gentler footpaths, not the tricky Parkin Clough route. Very wet and muddy day! Horrendous rainy weather at the top obscuring much of the view, but the Trig Point was in quite nice condition. Ladybower Reservoir was all-but-invisible through the cloud and mist. Descended by Parkin Clough, which required great care but was an enjoyable route down!
