Great name, great walk. This distinctively shaped hill - the Yorkshire Matterhorn - is a popular favourite on the northern edge of the North York Moors. It's best walked from Great Ayton, which has good bus links and has a station on the Esk Valley line. At only 320m, it's not a taxing climb to the summit, but you'll be rewarded by superb views and some brisk Yorkshire air.
