Me and my husband went up there early in the morning. We got there before many people and enjoyed the lake to our selves. It was amazingly quite and peaceful! I wouldn't miss it!

Lovely walk, carried our 2 yr old in a backpack carrier up to the tarn. Beautiful views of the waterfall and the tarn at the top. Nice terrain to walk up, rocky but nice. Our daughter actually walked down a bit if it on the way back down.

This is a lovely walk with some fantastic scenery without having to complete overly strenuous climbing. We went up to the tarn via the standard easedale tarn route footpath (left of the stream) and enjoyed great views of the waterfall. The tarn itself is very tranquil and worth some time spent relaxing on the shores. We returned down far easedale... More

Allow 2-3 hours for this pleasant walk from the centre of Grasmere village. There are good paths all the way to Easedale Tarn. A few scrambly bits, but nothing too tricky. Look out for deer as you climb. Great half day family walk, followed by treats in Grasmere!

So the hike itself can take around an hour if you want to go all the way up to the tarn itself, although an experienced hiker can probably navigate the trail in half the time but I'd highly recommend taking a few breaks just to take in the stunning surroundings. At the start of the trail you meet up with... More

Leaving on a gloomy day from The Grasmere Hotel and having been advised by the owner, Rob, that it was a must-do and on the best route to follow, we set off up the left side of the Sour Milk Gill Waterfall. With the recent rains, the waterfall and the rivulets were flowing in full force. The sound surrounding you... More

There is a well marked path but it's hard on the feet as it's very stony. It takes about 1.5hours to get up there, but it's amazing to see the tarn set in a circle of peaks. If you have never climbed up any hill this probably a good place to start. It's quite safe unless you try to swim... More

Walked up to the tarn from Grassmere, the walk is on a stone path and very easy to find. It happened to rain for most of the walk, so this made the stones quite slippy. The views once at the top are excellent even in the rain and mist!
