Tarn Crag is arrived at by way of visiting two delightful tarns - Easedale Tarn and Codale Tarn. Grasmere is left via Easedale Road and then a short steep path is followed by the waterfall up the side of Sourmilk Gill to reach Easedale Tarn, which backed by Tarn Crag is a place to stop and linger and a popular place for picnics. The walk heads on up another steep path to pass behind Belles Knott to reach Codale Tarn, a much quieter place to stop and rest. Then on about seven hundred metres to Tarn Crag - the path on this section is indistinct in places and is probably best avoided in mist or bad visibility unless your map and compass skills are very good. Tarn Crag affords wonderful views of the Helvellyn range and over Easedale towards Rydal Water and Windermere. A ridge is then followed down in to Far Easedale Gill on the return back to Grasmere.



Parking: The walk starts from the junction of Easedale Road and Broadgate in Grasmere opposite Sam Read's bookshop (grid reference NY 336 076) - There are quite a few pay and display car parks in Grasmere.
