Easy Walk from Elterwater to Grasmere

This is an easy Lake District walk from Elterwater in Great Langdale over to a viewpoint across Grasmere before returning to the start. The highlights on this route are obviously Grasmere, but the walk also includes the woodland at Red Bank and passes the YHA Langdale at High Close. That makes it an ideal way to get over to Grasmere Village or Langdale from the YHA.
