It had rained the previous couple of days before we went to Easedale Tarn which meant the waterfalls were magnificent. The walk starts at the north end of Grasmere and is very easy to follow. The waterfalls are fantastic and a very good photo opportunity....More

Staying with young family in Grasmere so a good entry level hike for the four year old. This trail is particularly beautiful in autumn going through broad leafed woodland in the lower reaches and then through bracken clad hills higher up. The waterfalls three quarters...More

Being not so fit and inexperienced, I opted for this walk. It was a little steep in places, but overall very easy, past the beautiful sour milk waterfall, and you're rewarded with a view of the lovely Easedale Tarn at the top.

This was a stunning hike up along a waterfall to a tarn (mountain lake.) Other hikers were friendly and helpful. We loved it!

Nice short walk to ease you into a weeks walking. Beautiful views down to grassmere. Steps towards the top, nice to cross over the stream and walk down the other side.

This walk starts right in the center of Grasmere and goes through farm fields along a stream. Eventually rising up to the tarn, it was a little more strenuous, but perfect for warming up to some other hikes in the area.

Not being climbers this was hard a parts but well worth it. Beautiful stunning views on the way up and cracking sense of quiteness once you got to the Tarn. Most of the way up is ok but some steeper bits. Just take your time...More

That was our second day in the Lake District and it was going to be the day of the big walk (17,5km). Easedale Tarn was our first step and we reached it after 1 hour of fantastic landscapes. When you arrive there you just want...More
