Picture: Kidds Gate access route.
 
Easy access to fine views.
Short Summary created by paddyhillsbagger  23 Feb 2013
Easy access from T026 575 A which is on an untarred but passable enough road from either Askamore or Camolin. There is a tree stump marked Kidds Gate at this point and parking for a few cars. The forest track winds round the hill and I went left, right, left at junctions to gain the summit. The top is awash with communication masts and associated debris which swamps the trig point, but the 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside are simply magnificent.
