Lovely walk with very steep climbing areas. View from the top is worth the effort. Visit the "lion and the lamb" and the "howitzer" - the areas of rock at the top of the hill - small hill but tricky and still has a wow factor.
Children and adults alike will love this small mountain. It's a steep but quick climb with excellent views over grasmere and the surrounding fells. A real sense of achievement and costs nothing.
We walked all the way round the ridge via Easdale Tarn and Sargeant Man and Calf Crag. Very steep climb - not for the feint hearted!
From Grasmere the walk leaves up Easedale Lane at the Nthn end of Grasmere village. Follow the trail, it's well sign posted. To make this easier spend a few pound on a walking map from a local shop. Back to the walk, it is challenging in places and a bit rocky but well worth the effort and view. Some tips... 更多

Continued to Calf Crag long walk lost the path part way got into boggy ground - not the only walkers seeking directions. Came down the easdale gill steep and rocky in parts very hot in the valley. Take plenty of drinks... 更多
Many different routes to go up so suitable for varying abilities. This year we opted for the straight up version which was tough as it was a very hot sunny day (yes these do happen in the Lakes) but boy was it worth it. The views from the top are amazing
Two adults on the wrong side of 50 and kids in early teens. General lack of exercise prior to holiday and we still managed to have a great walk with spectacular views. An accessible 3hr round trip walk from and back to Grasmere, plenty of places to pause and gather your composure. Real Lake District walking for the fitness impaired.
Climbing up Helm Crag is not for those of faint heart as it is a very steep and strenuous climb so you need to be fit. Once at the top though there are wonderful views down to Grasmere and to the surrounding fells. Helm Crag is not the highest of the Lakeland fells but it is quite challenging.
Visited with husband and sister-in-law. Husband and I are local in South Cumbria (although fairly new) and sister-in-law was on a visit from Scotland. The church was really lovely and well kept. There was plenty of information and a lovely little shop with some good items for sale. I will definitely take other visitors back there again. Well worth a... 更多
Helm Crag is a well signed route and the all-round views are awesome. From Grasmere up and down takes about 3 hours enjoying the views. You can also extend the walk around to Easedale Tarn so can do a reverse view,
