Takes about an hour to walk to the top with quite a steep climb from Grasmere but easy enough and worth it for the views. Tarn is bigger than expected.

The walk up to Easedale Tarn from Grasmere encapsulates the various charms of the Lake District - mountains, streams, waterfalls, flowers, trees and a tarn in a scenic location. Great for picnics and for wild swimming.

Absolutely stunning. It took our breath away when we reached the top! The waterfalls are beautiful but the tarn just topped it! 😍😍😍

Lovely walk, well signposted, pretty good underfoot. You walk at the side of a fantastic waterfall & they come to the tarn. Lovely day out

Easy access up to the tarn, past the waterfall, with beautiful views throughout. We'd planned to go up and over the the mountains at the end of the valley, but I couldn't manage the scramble so we walked around the tarn instead.

You are rewarded with great views as you walk up the valley to the tarn. The path takes you past lovely waterfalls, really impressive after heavy rain.

not sure if there is a map online but it is a easy walk to follow From Gradmere village to the tarn and back moderate walking about 2hrs. That's at a 61 yr old pace
