One of my favourite places in the Lakes. The walk up from Easdale valley is gorgeous, have a picnic on the bridge and talk in the surrounding. I can see my favourite hotel from here as well, Lancrigg, lemonade in the garden on a hot day so refreshing.

This is a comparatively easy walk up to the tarn from Grasmere and well worth the small amount of effort for the excellent views at the tarn. I can be descended by a slightly different route and you end up at a pleasant tea room.

Easedale Tarn is a gorgeous area and a great starter hike for the uninitiated to fell walking or those wanting to introduce their teenage offspring to the great outdoors. Not too arduous or strenuous to put anyone off. The path is easy to follow out of Grasmere and the tarn is a nice surprise and a great lunch stop. Allow... More

On a wet cloudy day we changed our planned walk to something a little lower. The path to the tarn is great, well defined and easy to follow. The tarn is beautiful even on a dull day - well worth the walk.

Well worth the hike to the top. Enjoyed every step of the way. Beautiful scenery, and a wonderful surprise when you reach the Tarn. A very tranquil, spectacular place to sit and view. Someone was swimming in the Tarn while we were there, it looked clear, calm and very inviting!

Superbly atmospheric, whatever the weather. Avoid the main drag if possible, and persevere beyond to the next tarn, Codale Tarn. Better still, climb the crag above both (Tarn Crag) for a dramatic view down sheer slopes, hundreds of feet to the tarns below.

There is a well-managed path all the way up to the tarn. We chose to come down the path on the other side of the valley, which was slightly longer but actually easier on the knees.

This is perfect if you only want a few miles walk and nothing too challenging. It's a beautiful stroll up and a spectacular Tarn once up the top and would be great for a picnic with the family.

This walk is definitely worth a look if you have 3/4 hours. Take a picnic to enjoy with the views at the top.
