The walk up Alcock Tarn starts just outside Grasmere and is a great addition to the coffin route which links Grasmere to Ambleside (4 miles) as the start of the walk is on the coffin route.
The walk up to the tarn starts in woodland and is a gradual climb before opening out to a path which tracks through low growing ferns with views over Grasmere to your left as you climb. Just over half way up you pass through a gate and enter more open fell land . The final part of the walk is more rocky but still easily walkable. The tarn opens up to your left and you can enjoy the views.
