Slightly challenging walk

The walk up to Easedale Tarn is slightly challenging because of the rocky path and altitude change. But the views at the top are worth the effort.

Starting from Grasmere the walk starts gently through farmland then climbs, quite steeply at times, over rocky & sometimes wet terrain, beside the waterfall up to the tarn, where the wind really picked up between the hill. Crossing to the other side and descending using stepping stones over boggy ground crosses into another valley before returning to Grasmere. Great views... More

Great place to visit with the family for a picnic. Quite a challenge to get there and back but well worth the effort.

Well worth a visit with access direct from the centre of Grasmere. A steady climb to Easedale Tarn although can get very 'busy' at times.

Delightful walk and easy to follow, not a steep climb but rewarding views. Can be crowded on weekends

Walk out to the east from Grasmere Village, following the signs to Easedale Road and Easedale Tarn. The paths are very well-maintained, through mostly National Trust property. An exquisite waterfall forms a great stopping point, then continue on up and around to the tarn. Sheepfolds, crags, lovely farmsteads and wooded infolds make this a great half-day jaunt.

Try to avoid if there has been a huge amount of rain. Can be quite dangerous but any other time, it is glorious.

A steady and in places steep climb up to just over 900 feet. very rough in places and climbing boots a necessity. Superb views from halfway up with plenty of waterfalls and the tarn at the top. the weather was dull but still well worth the effort.
