BE PREPARED for this walk. This is no walk in park or stroll along the seawall. It is a vertical workout. Make sure you wear appropriate shoes, take lots of water and snacks. This hike attracts serious climbers and can be very very busy at certain times of the year. I enjoying doing this hike and rewarding myself at the... More

First off, you need to prepare for this experience. This is not a walk in the park on a Sunday afternoon. This is a hike. A long, steep one with many, many stairs. Let's start with a list of do's and don'ts. Do bring water, lots of water and a snack Don't wear flip flops, keds, or some other stupid... More

It's a tough workout, but there's definitely satisfaction in making it to the top. For that reason, I keep going back and curse under my breath each time that I subject myself to the steep hike up the mountain. I don't find the process fun, but I like the challenge. Definitely a great workout. Dress appropriately, bring water and snacks... More

A great, challenging hike. Very tough but not that long. Make sure you bring water, snacks, and wear appropriate clothes and footwear! It's a tough trail and you need good sneakers or hiking boots.

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
