“Roseberry Topping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

This little matterhorn is a must for all walkers of all abilities great for dog walkers take your poop bags with you.
It's 6 miles from the car park to the top and back, but the views are worth every step.

“A short walk with a huge reward”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

It takes just half an hour to get up Roseberry Topping by the central, steep route, but the panoramic view at the top is more than worth the climb. There are stupendous views of the moors and on this crisp, sunny day in early March it was wonderful to glimpse the blue of the sea. There are plenty of routes up and down this hill, we descended by a slower, gentler slope which was kinder to the knees. Car parking at the base of the hill is for a flat fee (I think it was £2.50) and there are toilets in the car park, although they were closed on the morning of our visit.

“A nice little wander”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

A grand little wander with good views from the top and plenty of different interesting routes, downsides are it can be very busy and when it is there can be a lot of litter :-(

“An iconic mountain known locally as the Yorkshire Matterhorn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Roseberry Topping (a corruption of Old Norse) is easy to climb from several directions, has a pay car park with facilities, and the views from the top are a stunning contrast. To the North there is a panoramic view of the local heavy industry in the distance (oil refining, chemicals processing and steel products.)
To the south and East one looks towards the beautiful Yorkshire Moors National Park and the East coast.
Farmhouses and well maintained fields are all around to provide a perfect pastoral view.
Topping is owned by the National Trust who maintain it reasonably well with a mixture of rangers and volunteers.
In the 1800's there was intensive mining of the mountain and this led to one side of the peak collapsing in the 19th century.
Today it is a favourite climb for locals and visitors to the area and will always be an iconic shape on the skyline.
