Grasmere to Paterdale is one of the shortest stretches on this walk. Short and sweet, it is a classic section where walkers can enjoy some great views back to Grasmere before walking over Grisdale and on to Patterdale via beautiful valleys and the lake of Ullswater glistening in the distance.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Another beautiful walk in the lakes district, past the tarn and then down to the green sheep dotted valley with views of Ullswater. Sprinkles of rain and bursts of sunshine made for a varied day.
