This walk takes in some breathtaking views of Grasmere, the picturesque Loughrigg Tarn (as seen in the 'Miss Potter' movie) and a cave. It starts in the woods between Rydal and Grasmere and after crossing the river and walking through the woods, the path continues along the well-known Loughrigg Terrace, providing panoramic views over the Vale of Grasmere.

After walking round the fell the very pretty Loughrigg Tarn comes into view and provides the opportunity for a well-earned rest while taking in the views. All along the walk the views are tremendous and are obtainable without too much of a climb.

Great walk with lots of variety, but a word of warning. From way point 17 the minor path was very difficult to follow due to bracken (3rd November 2021), and we had to rely heavily on the GPS to keep us on track until Grasmere came into view.

Good walk though rather busy at some points but that could be because we did it on a Saturday. Mostly dog friendly. Note that the 'unusual tree' at point 12 seems to have disappeared but the stile is still there. We would have said 'straight ahead' rather than right path at point 19. Otherwise easy to follow and a nice mix of terrain.
