Stunning views as you head for the tarn, taking in the waterfall as you go. You can park in Grasmere village and take the pathway up to the tarn just opposite the Heaton Cooper Art Studio. Plenty of places in the village for refreshment after your walk. You can cross over the stepping stones at the top to return down a different path - we couldn't as the water levels were too high

We walked up to Easedale Tarn on a beautiful August day. There are quite a few steps to climb and it’s quite hard in places if like me you aren't an avid climber. Once we reached the top people were swimming and enjoying picnics which I would recommend anyone to do - it’s a fantastic sight to see and a hidden gem.

This is a really great 2-3 hour walk from Grasmere. Its a hike, not a climb and the variety of scenery is fantastic. As you get over the lip and see this high Tarn it makes the whole walk so worthwhile. It's a loop round trip, watch the stepping stones across the stream out of the lake.

Was looking for a decent walk from close to Windermere and this walk came up. Glad that we did this one as its a brilliant walk from Grasmere village. Just the right time and effort required to get up to the tarn and back. The views on the way and once we reach there are outstanding with beautiful waterfalls on the way. The day we went for this walk, the weather was really dramatic changing from very heavy rainfall to sunshine and then we were pelted with hailstones with a raging wind during the 2-3 hr return walk. Due to the incessant rain there was a lot of marshy land on route along with lots of streams etc. The hike can also get very slippery after heavy rains. But it was all worth the effort for the fabulous views.

I've done this hike, from Grasmere to the tarn, twice now. The first time was in terrible weather (driving wind and rain) which was not so good, but on this visit the weather was glorious. A well marked path up to the tarn, there are a couple of steeper sections but fantastic views and a few small waterfalls on the way up too

Beautiful walk from Grasmere village up to tarn for a swim. Head down lane towards Allen bank, all quite easy to follow the route (found on google search or follow OS map). The walk up took approx 1.5hrs, mainly cobbles/rock paths so stout footwear highly recommended. Spraining an ankle on the walk would be disastrous. You have to stop frequently to admire the view as the rest of the time you are watching your feet! There are steep sections but doable if you are fairly fit. You walk alongside the beck for quite a while but it was very low water. A couple of “paddling pools” near the top section. The tarn is absolutely stunning, we were the only ones there for a while, the water was warm and after the climb, the swim was heavenly. It was quicker going back down, we retraced our steps but you can return down a slightly different way. A bit more precarious on way down as again, watch where you put your feet, some stones are lose and you can slip a little. We took the dogs and they have to stay on the lead due to signs and sheep, so that is either a blessing as they “pull” you up, or a nuisance as they tug you down. We left at 7am and recommend an early start if hot. Very little shade once you start climbing. A late breakfast at the Old Bakery was a perfect ending.

The walk from Grasmere up to easedale tarn isn't overly challenging but is definitely worth the effort.
The walk up gets you firstly to the waterfall fed by the tarn and on a hot day we had to dump our rucksacks and get in! It was fabulous and when correctly positioned you felt like you were getting a pummelling massage which was most agreeable. Following on from this the final walk to the tarn is fairly easy and the reward is a crystal clear body of water inviting you to jump in for a swim. Views from the tarn are also amazing.
Definitely my top spot so far on our Grasmere trip

This is a great circuit to do for less experienced walkers who don’t want to climb several peaks.
The path is well signposted and a loop can be achieved by descending from the Tarn back to Grasmere via Upper Easdale.
We particularly enjoyed our walk up to the tarn by topping it off with a wild swim- highly recommended!

We’d spotted this tarn from helm’s crag earlier in the week, so came back for a bit of an explore. It’s been raining a fair bit over the last couple of days, so the paths were pretty wet, but a fantastic view from the tarn and impressive waterfalls on the way up. From Grasmere it took about an hour and a half and was an easy climb.

The walk on a hot day feels relentless but I imagine it’s much easier when it’s not 28 degree full sun. Worth it to get to the tarn and cool off though. Stunning views all around. Paths are good. Stony/Rocky but good.

Definitely be back next time.
