Had two days to hike while staying in grasmere...local guide pointed me in the direction of easdale yarn and with walking access from my hotel. Despite torrential rain the walk was beautiful. Loved the waterfalls, terrain and tarn. Will be back!

Plan A for our group of seven including three teenagers was to walk up Helvellyn. But a late start and grotty weather meant a plan B was required. Walking up to Easedale Tarn from Grasmere fitted the bill, the teenagers enjoyed scrambling around the waterfalls...More

Fairly easy walk to get here and well marked too. There is no disabled access, as it climbs steps. Wonderful views en route and to have the accompanying sound of water is just lovely. As with most Lakes walks, you can go further on rather...More

I dropped into the walkers bar at Langrig on the steady walk up to Easedale Tarn. The bar is a recent and welcome addition to the Langrig Hotel. Clear signs to Easdale and Helm Crag in the grounds.

It had rained the previous couple of days before we went to Easedale Tarn which meant the waterfalls were magnificent. The walk starts at the north end of Grasmere and is very easy to follow. The waterfalls are fantastic and a very good photo opportunity....More

Staying with young family in Grasmere so a good entry level hike for the four year old. This trail is particularly beautiful in autumn going through broad leafed woodland in the lower reaches and then through bracken clad hills higher up. The waterfalls three quarters...More

Being not so fit and inexperienced, I opted for this walk. It was a little steep in places, but overall very easy, past the beautiful sour milk waterfall, and you're rewarded with a view of the lovely Easedale Tarn at the top.

It took an hour at a moderate walking pace from valley floor (North of Grasmere) to reach Easedale Tarn. Great views, although even better views if you continue for an hour on to the crags above - but that involves some scrambling. Also good to...More

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
