Hazelgill Crags is a second location in the area for a rock inscribed with runes. The other is at Barron's Pike NY5975 : Is this the inscribed rock at Barron's Pike?. They were supposed to have been discovered by a shepherd, in 1872 and 1864 respectively. They are believed to be forgeries of the mid-19th century.

At Hazelgill Crags, the inscription, comprising one row of characters, is described as being visible on the north-west face of a cleft in the natural rock outcrop.
