Maybe over the summer but end of November with the sky becoming orange towards the end of the afternoon the color were trully magical. For the kids they had the fun of the stepping stones to get there :)

the walk up passed sour milk gill is lovely after a lot of rain. The tarn is peaceful and the route can be used as a stepping stone to the Langdales or Blea Rigg etc.

A walk that could be done in all weathers as not too high. Fantastic views of waterfall, especially when full. A good circular walk with varied interest points. About four miles and 2.5 hours. Excellent, especially in the Autumn where the colours are beautiful.

We liked every bit of it. An easy walk to start with and then a climb with lovely views of some waterfalls. Then we arrived at the Tarn. It was so peaceful, the weather was cloudy but the reflection in the Tarn from the surrounding hills was awesome. I a matter of 10 minutes this quiet place suddenly filled with... More

When you walk into Easedale from Grasmere you enter a "private" world of farms and attractive countryside, enclosed by high fells. The final walk up to the Tarn is short, steep and well worth it. The Tarn itself is quite large and as picturesque as anywhere in the Lakes. I recommend that you then walk to the far side of... More

Have walked up to this tarn more times than I care to remember, since I first visited Grasmere as a child in 1974. My wife and I usually walk further now, over the crest beyond the tarn and into the valley beneath, then back via Elterwater and Loughrigg Tarn, but the Easedale walk is both beautiful and accessible to most,...

A reasonably easy low level walk without any steep scrambles. We extended it by walking around the tarn.

Clear route up a bit of scrambling in places opens out as you follow the waterfall up to the tarn, a bit windy.You can descend on the opposite side which gives a contrasting walk back.
