Cringlebarrow Woods are a great place to explore, small trails and paths lead through fine woods and limestone outcrops. This can be combined with a visit to Deepdale Pond - see OK0082 for a fine walk. The main paths are used by dog walkers but you're not likely to see anyone at the summit.
In days of yore, the cairn at the summit marked the top with fine views across Leighton Moss and the coast. Now small trees have grown up and rather obscure the view. Climb a tree! Or, work through the low branches about 40m SW and a more open area of limestone pavement can be found, which does provide a view.
The summit wood feels quite old and almost a secret spot. You may see a deer or other wildlife, and there is a fine variety of trees, including Oak, Yew and Scots Pine. It is also home to Small Leaved Lime trees, fairly rare in Lancashire.
You will need to explore and follow game trails and pathlets to make your way up to Round Top, at 110m. The crags don't make westward progress easy but, go with the grain and small paths do go around the ends of the crags or one or two cross them. It'll be an adventure!
Park as for OK0082 and after visiting the Pond, continue along the ridge to the top. Or park at the north end of Yealand Redmayne, at the old pinfold N54 10.705 W002 46.200. The footpath goes through some plantation to a gate into the lovely deciduous woods. Now follow small paths.
The cache is a small, black, round container, under a projecting rock at the base of a multi-trunked yew tree, on the ridge south of the cairn.
