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.

We did this at Christmas and though it was windy it was a fine easy walk with great views of the waterfall and river and tarn. Some slightly steep bits near the top but not hard for someone new to walking in the Lakes.

We walked up the bag via Far Easedale - most people turner off at the bottom and headed straight there giving us a much quieter walk up. Doing this in December, the tarn was pleasant walking around - but there were a few inviting places to take a dip in the summer. It's a fairly quick and easy walk up... More

We are not walkers, but really enjoyed this walk, perhaps took us a little longer than we thought but well worth it when you get there

This walk can start from Grasmere village which is the route I took and is a pretty easy gentle climb up to a stunning tarn .The path follows the stream up .The views back over the village and valley are fantastic.

Hadn't visited the tarn for some time and it never fails to please. Not too difficult to get to and doesn't take too long to complete the round visit back to Grasmere.
