Always a good one to stretch your legs and get you in stead for some of the more demanding hills roundabout, - as stated before, up through forestry ( midge spray in summer useful ) area, then levels off for a bit and you head on the path past the Narian boulders ( useful encouragement for kids with Lion witch and wardrope mentions ) - continue along the path then it starts to get rocky and finally into hands and feet time, ( the fun bit ) - my 10 year old did it in Summer time, my youth club - teenagers - when it was dry but snow on the last bit , and I've also done it in the pouring rain, but always enjoyable - the final haul is up a narrow but well trod path to the top
If you then feel inclined you can consider
the ' Cobbler's anvil with the Eye of the Needle ' ( photo above ) where if you have a head for heights you can go through the eye and up onto the top of it ( although this may be an area to rope up for safety) I've never done it as the once through the needle the ledge is not much more than a foot wide and slopes downward ( to like a 100 foot drop ! - maybe less but roping does seem a more desirable ) and is as shiny and slippery looking as polished marble lol
Coming back you can loop round the back of Ben Arthur to then catch up with the bottom path later on, or you can return the same way you came.
So get a map, get your kit sorted, proper clothes, shoes, food and water in order and an early start to get parked nearer the bottom - quite a lot of parking available so not so much of a struggle as can be found at other hills.
