Day 1 –  Easedale Round

Starting in Grasmere you will set off with your guide and group towards Easedale Tarn which lies hidden, high in the fells, surrounded by towering crags. This is a place of outstanding natural beauty.

From the Easedale Tarn we take a rocky path to our first summit, Sergeant Man, where you can enjoy views down in to the Langdale Valley. From here we go to High Raise, the highest summit of the day (and the most central high point in the Lake District), a great place for a rewarding rest and enjoy the stunning views. Our route back to Grasmere is over the three summits of Calf Crag, Gibson Knott and Helm Crag (the famous Lion and Lamb).

Day 2 – Discover Elterwater and Loughrigg.

From Grasmere we head straight for the first summit, Silver Howe, over undulating moorland with fine views over Grasmere. Dropping down towards Chapel Stile in Great Langdale we join the Cumbria Way running alongside Great Langdale Beck to Elterwater. This is one of most visited places in the Lake District and you will soon see why.

The route continues to Skelwith Bridge where we leave the Cumbria Way and head for the beautiful area of Little Loughrigg and Loughrigg Tarn. A great place to stop and enjoy the surroundings especially across to the Langdale Pikes. From here we start climbing again, up to the small summit of Loughrigg Fell, one of the best view points in the Lake District. Loughrigg Terrace leads us down to Rydal Water and then back along the shoreline of Grasmere back to the village.

Where does it start?

Both days start and finish in the village of Grasmere in the heart of the Lake District. We recommend staying in either Grasmere or Ambleside which is a couple of miles away.

Is this for me?

This weekend is ideal for novice hillwalkers who have a good level of fitness. The routes are not at all technically difficult but we will be walking for around 7-8 hours per day.

  • What our clients say...

    Had a fantastic two days walking in the Lakes with two brilliant guides, Jamie and Col. Both were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area, and knew all the fells and lakes (and pubs). Will be booking another walk as soon as I can and would definitely recommend Mountain Walks to anyone thinking of going on a guided walk.

    Mountain Walks provided a first class experience. There was no set pace. The group leaders were quick to work out the level of everyone and made sure no-one felt left behind or frustrated at a slower pace. Everyone enjoyed the whole experience. Highly recommend this company for their client service. Great weekend!
