fun and challenging

we loved this hike in this beautiful city. Did it on my 50th birthday in under an hour. But you don't have to rush - anyone who is mobile can do it if you take your time.

While most people you talk to love this. It was not for me. Having asthma and the steep incline was not my favorite outdoor activity or exercise. IT IS HARD! You can see tourist going up in their high heels and jeans, but I would not recommend that. I would say it is a work out and dress accordingly and... More

Grouse grind is a excellent hike! Difficult one! Challenging! But really worth it!!! During weekend can be very busy so start early in the morning! Wear a good shoes! During summer there is a lot of tourists attraction up there!!! Good food, nice store and good coffee place! A lot to do up there! Just go and explore!

A real gut buster, be prepared, do it in your own time and don't start late and remember you have to come down in the cable car, $15. Don't even think of eating up there unless you're desperate.

This can be a challenging hike for some people. A majority of the hike is up with a few level spots. It can be very busy with locals using this hike as their daily work out. It's close in the winters months due to the snow. The best time is April until November. You hike both ways or take the... More

The Grind is a 3km climb that ascends 1000m. It is a challenging climb up rock and wood steps. Make sure you wear some good athletic footwear as there are sometimes slippery and wet conditions.

Didn't think i would be able to do it since i'm not the most active person. But i finished it, and it felt great! I definitely recommend trying it if you're in the area. if you choose to not climb the steps, there is a gondola you can take.

Walking up grouse grind is well worth the effort. There is transport down to make it easier, plenty to do at the top. Check for snow if going in the winter.

I live here in North Vancouver, minutes away from the Grouse Grind at the base of Grouse Mountain. I am continually stunned at the tourists who show up expecting a leisurely stroll in flip flops, high heels , skirts etc. Be warned - this hike is NOT for the faint of heart and is definitely NOT a leisurely stroll. Also,... More

This is a famous and popular attraction locally. In the summer time you can can barely move along the trails it's so busy. Wear proper shoes, dress in layers (no matter what time of year or weather) and bring water. Plenty of it. I'm a very fit person and am active, but I just don't get it. Why climb up... More
