Tosson Hill Trig Point

Trig Point Rothbury Northumberland

Tosson Hill Trig Point

Trig Point In Rothbury, Northumberland

The trig point sitting on top of Tosson Hill (440m) #147.

The best thing about bagging this trig point is that you get to spend a day in the glorious Simonside Hills. Sitting at 440m above sea level, you have around 250m of climbing to get to, but the views are well worth it.

You're best off parking at the main Simonside Forestry car park and then there is a track heading through the forest and up onto Tosson Hill.

Around 5km to the top and then you can either straight back down or extend your wander around the hills.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
