Helm Crag was "the mountain in the garden" during our stay in Grasmere and so we decided to take the children up it after our Sunday lunch. It is a relatively easy footpath although steep at times. It is clearly marked in the summer and all of my children (youngest five) made it to the top without a problem.
The view from the top is lovely, although there is a very steep drop the other side of the Lion rock. On the day we climbed the Red Arrows were performing over Windermere and we were treated to our very own private display!
