The site was once known as Crindledyke Bing and mainly consisted of waste materials from the Coltness Iron Company. It was regraded in 1975. In the 1990's it was planted with trees and since then has had several environmental and access enhancements undertaken. Most recent projects have been initiated by the local community.

There is now a good network of waymarked paths covering the hill. There is a short route with blue arrows and a longer yellow route. The site is well used by dog walkers and joggers, as well as people taking a pleasant short cut. The young woodlands are open and bright and there are good opportunities for bird watching and wildlife study.

One of the best things about Braedale Hill is the view from the top. Look north past Murdostoun Castle to the Campsie Fells, Kilsyth Hills and the high point of the Meikle Bin. Look northeast past Shotts and Hartwood Hospital, and east over Kingshill Woodland and the Blacklaw windfarm. Look south to Tinto Hill. Look southwest towards Whitelees wind farm. Look northwest over Newmains, to Coatbridge, Glasgow and beyond to Ben Lomond and the Trossachs.
