We took about 2.5 hours to walk to the lake and back, stopping to take many pictures along the way. Although the area had been flooded recently, the trail was in excellent condition. Enjoyed the spectacular views and historic landscape.

There a few versions of this walk. You can choose to do half or whole length, clockwise or anticlockwise! If one intends to walk in the dark, it is better to do anti clockwise. On Sunday 3/1/2016, the whole walk was soaked with rain - well compensated by the serene and beauty of the waterfalls, and amount of water. Be... More

This is an easy, but well worth it, half day hike. It is very convenient if staying in the Grasmere area.

Normally this is a moderate walk and providing you have good ankle supporting boots it is as stroll, however at this time of year the footpath becomes a small beck(stream), so good waterproof boots are a must. Easdale tarn takes about 90 minutes from Lancrigg lodge, the views on the ascent are tremendous Sour Milk Ghyll on the descent you... More

An easy walk from the centre of Grasmere leads to Easdale Tarn high above the village. It's a tranquil spot and Sour Milk Ghyll is spectacular especially after the rain we've had recently.

This is a fairly easy walk directly from Grasmere which gradually climbs to reach Easedale Tarn. Accessible for the whole family, lovely views, waterfalls and places to stop and take everything in. Will definitely do this walk again when we are back in the area.
