The summit of Plover Hill with Pen-Y-Ghent in the distance
Plover Hill constitutes an area of moorland the northeast of Pen-Y-Ghent, connected by a ridge of high ground. Now Access Land, the ridge itself is very boggy and presents a fair challenge to even the most experienced walkers. In addition to this, thanks to the wide, flat plateau, the excitement is limited.

More interest can be found on Plover Hill's northern face, the steep crag of Pen-Y-Ghent Side offering in interesting route up to the summit from the Foxup Road bridleway.

Views from the summit (that includes a very small cairn) include Pen-Y-Ghent and a fine vista of Foxup Moor.
