A nice steady walk to the tarn and back form the village. We completed it in a little over two hours and we took it steady. The waterfalls and the tarn are very picturesque and well worth the visit. A good walk if you don't want to be out all day but get a good lung full of country air.... More

This is a great walk from Grasmere, not to sure i would say its an easy walk. but in the right weather a refreshing walk. don't be taken in with a nice warm valley as you climb up the path to this lovely secluded tarn the temperature can be a lot cooler, so PLEASE make sure you have the right...

You will not be disappointed if you do this walk! Located just outside grasmere it's a relatively easy walk up to the tarn with a wonderful waterfall part way up! It looks spectacular whatever the season and I must have been there three times in the last year. So you can incorporate it into multiple different walks. If you fancied... More

My boyfriend and I did this walk following the instructions which I found online. A lot of people have labelled this 'easy' which I wouldn't necessarily agree with; however, I guess it would be classed easy for the seasoned hiker. As it is very much up hill it is rather difficult and we had to take regular breaks as our... More

Went for a walk on a mid January Saturday. Very snowy and icy. So atmospheric and few walkers. The waterfall all the way up is really beautiful.

steady walk uphill to a semi secluded tarn. Even when there are a few people about it remains a very peaceful place. The walk up follows a beck with some decent waterfalls and rock pools

This is a 7km round trip from the town! I would highly recommend after heavy rain as it brings the river & waterfall to life. We have truly had a wonderful day and my 7 year old managed it without any moaning!

We did this walk on 13th January, on a dry but cold and windy day. It was pleasant walking with lovely views. Given more time (and less wind) we'd have extended our walk over to Stickle tarn and loop back over to Grasmere. We'll go back and do that another time.

Easily one of the best walks in the lake districts. Well more of a hike. The views are ridiculously rewarding when you reach the top and for some reason every time we go up the sun is always shining. I'd say it's children friendly as all the pathways seem safe and steady however it's a little steep on the way... More

This is a good place to walk to from Grasmere. It is quite a rough steep climb up to it but worth it. We have done it many times.
