Crag Hill (Yorkshire Dales)

Location: Yorkshire Dales National Park - Cumbria
Height: 682 metres (2,238 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Stony/Boggy/Flat
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point
Range: Pennines
Crag Hill is a typically flat topped Yorkshire Dales high point that towers above the village of Dent - Cumbria. This fell is usually climbed when en-route to its higher neighbour Great Coum, it is also the beginning of a fantastic ridge walk that, aside from Great Coum also takes in two more significant summits, Green Hill and Gragareth.
The views from the summit of Crag Hill are rewarding for your efforts to reach the summit, in particular the view west towards Morcambe Bay, and north west towards Calf Top, the Howgill Fells and the Lake District fells beyond. The northern views look towards Aye Gill Pike with East Baugh Fell just about visible peaking up behind. The north eastern views look on towards Great Coum, as does the eastern view, with the far northern flanks of Whernside visible beyond.
