This stage is a Lakeland classic, taking you on a straightforward climb up past Lining Crag to Greenup Edge. There are high level and low level options for this walk; this route is the lower one.   

The walk is often combined with the next one taking you to Patterdale, making the walk 27.5 km. If you stick to the valley the walk isn't too demanding, if you would like more of a challenge head up the high level track. 

Grasmere is a perfect spot to break for lunch or to finish your day. Mix amoung walkers and day tourists to soak up the atmosphere Wordsworth called 'the fairest place on earth'.

Despite the rating, I found the steep sections of this segment challenging. The reward was a lunch break with a view.
