Roseberry Topping erupts proudly from the level landscape of the North York Moors; its dramatic shape inspiring many photographers and painters. It is a relatively challenging, but manageable, hike to the summit and you are afforded with spectacular views once there. There are a few different route options to the top, of varying difficulties. Roseberry Topping is known locally as the ‘Yorkshire Matterhorn’ because its shape reminds people of the pyramidal peak that straddles the Swiss and Italian border.

Its alter-ego as the Matterhorn of Yorkshire might be pushing credulity a little, but there’s no denying Roseberry Topping’s prominence. Sticking out from the plateau of the North York Moors, its hooked summit is visible for miles around as the only thing of any great height. And for that reason, the view from its top is superb.
