From the most adventurous among us, to those only wanting a 2 hour challenge the grind offers something for everyone. Most of the guide books will tell you the Grind is natures stair master, and they are right. From the moment you start till the last few steps, it is all up hill. That said, just about anyone can complete... More

I think whatever your fitness level The Grouse Grind will be tougher than what you expected. That said, as long as you are reasonably healthy you should give this a go. The sense of achievement when you reach the top makes it all worthwhile. To put my review into context, I am in my mid 50's, & according to my... More

If you know Snowdon -- it's harder than that. If you know Scafell -- it's harder but shorter than that. If you know Triffen -- it's similar but harder. The brutal facts are: Length: 2.9 kilometres (1.8 miles) Elevation Gain: 853 metres (2,800 feet) Base: 274 metres above sea level (900 feet) Summit: 1,127 metres (3,700 feet) Total Stairs: 2,830...

It's not for the faint hearted but can be climbed at your own pace, I've seen all ages and ability's going up. It is a hike/climb up the side of Grouse Mountain so no flat, easy walking path, wear your runners.. Sense of achievement & view when you arrive make it all worth it...

If you are fit enough then you must really do this. its about 850 steps of various heights and rises around 900m in 2800m so steep!! But a really good workout and feeling when you get to the top!!

We are from Ontario and have been wanting to try it for a while, hearing it from some relatives in Vancouver. My 7 year old son and his cousins basically skipped up the mountain. My wife did it a lot faster than I did. I took an hour and 45 mins. It was exhausting. We passed and were passed by... More

I did my first "grind" this week. I read all the reviews and wasn't sure what to expect. To be honest- i was terrified!! What if i can't do it? what if i have to pee half way up?!! I don't consider myself out of shape, but I was nervous that I wasn't fit enough for this hike after reading... More

You need to be prepared. It is not a walk in the park! It is a challenge. It is not scenic. You are in the woods with very few vistas.

This is by far the hardest exercise I have done, and I have completed the Gran Fondo Whistler amongst all kinds of gym activity, half-marathons, etc. I consider myself in good shape, but not as great as it used to be and this kicked my butt. Sweat pouring off my brow and at times had to stop and catch my... More
