What a great workout! With a nice view at the top too. The trail starts a little east of the bottom of the gondola and heads up to the top of the gondola... very steeply. I had fun tracking my time and then comparing it to the online statisics when I was done. Note that traffic is one-way only, you... More

2.9 km's straight up the side of Grouse Mountain - Rewarded by the best view of the Prettiest City in Canada - hey - North America. The Grind attracts thousands every year and our Saturday was typical - a steady stream of hikers climbing their way to the top. All ages, all skill levels - this is a challenging climb... More

Extremely difficult. You'll definitely have to be in decent shape to get to the top hiking. You can opt to take the gondola up. Great views when youre at the top

I am in fairly good shape and finally decided to tackle the Grouse Grind. My sister moved to BC 8 years ago and every year I visited, I never took the opportunity to climb this mountain. Even when I wasn't in great shape, I should have done it! I wish I did climb it every year to see my progress.... More

Great local fitness experience!! Do not underestimate this - once you are into it, there is basically no way out except to complete it or turn back. Read the warning signs and pay attention to the warnings. This reminds me of racing up the fire stairwells in tall office buildings, but much longer. Given that you are outside also greatly... More

Having heard about the Grouse Grind....I encouraged my friend to accompany me when I was in Vancouver to visit. At the last minute, her 10 year old twins decided they would join us. It is a long way up...and we didn't come close to setting any speed records! The boys were always way ahead of us and we were passed... More

You have to do this if you have an excessive exercise habit. THis is how to measure how fit you are. WARNING- pace yourself for a better time, don't burn out too soon, it gets worse, steeper. Lots of places to reward yourself up top.

I'm always up for a challenge but sometimes creaky knees and bad ankles tell me not to. This is one super steep hike and very tough. I do a fair amount of hiking, and this was insane! If you like a challenge I say go for it, but I will try the more gradual trail that forks off at the... More

Such a touch hike but what an amazing experience! Saw people of all ages and abilities hiking up with vigor, great sense of camaraderie on the way. The steps are uneven and some are natural - so can be slippery / hard-going! At the top, lots of services and anxieties and a nice cable car ride down.

When I first did the Grind two years ago my friends just told me it was a hike, but honestly it's not a hike, it's just stairs. Lots and lots and LOTS of stairs up a mountain. There's no break in the trail from the stairs, it's just up and up and up! The first time I did it I... More
