Tough going !

The grouse grind is 2.9km long and basically is straight up the mountain. It is tough even for fit hikers. We did it in 1.75 hours .

Nice long walk, make sure to take water with you and some kind of snacks to eat while you get the top.

A great exercise plan for early morning when it first opens. Anytime thereafter, you will be close on the heels of the person in front of you...never leave without water. Enjoy view at the top! Free to climb and low cost to take Gondola down. $8

The Grind is a steep 3km hike up Grouse Mountain. If you're planning to do this activity dress appropriately for strenuous exercise and wear very sturdy walking shoes. We really enjoyed this hike, and on our way up passed plenty of "tourists" that just weren't prepared for what they were getting themselves into. We went on a Saturday morning and... More

This is a great hike but not one for the faint hearted. You need to be in reasonable shape to complete this tough climb. The route is well maintained but in the height of summer can be very busy. If you feel you cant finish it there is no option to go back down and you must continue to the... More

A must hike! If you love nature and exercise this is a great way to enjoy both! Some 2,600 steps up, up and up the whole way with brief areas to stop and catch your breath. Have a nice lunch on top with a great view and then take the gondola ride down for about $10. There are bathrooms once... More

Nice challenge and accomplishment to finish this hike. Possibly the worst hamburger I have ever had at the top. But the view is awesome and the lumberjack show highly entertaining.

But now I bought the t-shirt. Seriously. Hard, hard hike. Like, seriously hard. I suspect I was relatively quick (for the non-professional) and it was 85 mins of hell. And I overtook more people than I was voertaken by (just). Worth it to say you've done it, but if you've done it more than once, I suspect you're quite mad.... More

I went there with a friend to check it out, we didn't really have any expectations for it. If you are going for peaceful hike, this is not for you. If you are going for a hike with a view, this is not for you. If you are a tourist wanting to experience BC, go to Lynn Canyon or Deep... More

Beautiful nature park, nice trails . Grizzly bear habitat, We could see two of the bears very closely. Very good lumberjack show. Most amazing experience was the "Eye of the Wind" , This is a pod on top of a huge wind turbine on the peak of the Grouse Mountain . It's amazing feat of engineering and breathtaking 360 degrees...
