About an hour up from Grasmere, just follow the signs, a couple of short steep pulls. Solitude and grandour. The students with us were stunned. Plenty of flat bits to camp. Water in streams / tarn full of fish - ok to drink (would still boil!). Very little litter. Beware midges, take Deet!

British beauty at its best, wonderful views. Great walk and very relaxing once up the top. Not to difficult for first timers this one.

This walk is on clear tracks and rough footpaths, climbing over the open hill to the tarn. It was cloudy with no sun breaking through so it was somewhat eerie. We walked around the tarn which neccesitated finding our way across the stream and then down the other side, crossing Far Easedale Gill at a footbridge. The path down to... More

we liked this walk for the dramatic scenery following Sourmilk Gill up to the tarn. The tarn is very peaceful and we returned down Easedale and found some lovely picnic spots by the beck. On the way we met members of Fix the Fells repairing the path. It really made us appreciate the effort these volunteers put in and we... More

Did this walk in February and had not been able to walk in the fells for some time due to health being poor. What a delight it was to get out into the fells again doing such a varied and scenic route. There had been snow before hand which was rapidly melting so the track was extremely wet and crossing...

On a sunny day walking uphill by the tarn, the view is beautiful. We were on our way to Sergeant Man, a stiff walk from Grasmere, but made well worthwhile by views of eh tarn.

Took us about 3 hours from Grasmere, including a picnic in the sunshine at the tarn. You need good walking shoes/ boots but it's not a hard walk. Nice ice cream stop at bottom!

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.
