Heads of the Rivers Trek - No 12 Maiden Hill
An easy walk up from Cowsic Head brings you to the top of Maiden Hill. Look out for Beardown Man to your left on the other side of the river valley. I could almost say "It's all downhill from here", but I would be lying! Another difficult hide, so another hint and spoiler.
