This is not an easy hike by any means. It is basically one hour of stair master, without stopping. But at the top has a lot to see, and you can take the gondola down for ten bucks. Definitely do this- get a workout in and see the city from the nearby mountain.

An excellent hike. No training necessary. And what a great reward with all the views, activities on top of the mountain.

The Grouse Grind is a brilliant way to offset all of the beers you drank the night before! Its hard work, and its wise to wear something light as you soon warm up and start sweating. It takes on average about an hour maybe an hour and 10 mins to get to the top, you can take the gondola to... More

Nothing went "wrong" it is just a grind. There are some very good viewpoints on the climb up, the top is usually crowded with all the people who have come up on the "lift" and I found the food expensive and average. It is a good tourist stop for people who don't have the time or energy to climb it

Though challenging, The Grind is very scenic. Don't be worried about kids not making it up the trail, it's sometimes harder for the parents!

This is a tough steep hike! But I loved it! My husband and I did it together and we had so much fun! Getting to the top was exciting! Take a little snack and water with you and don't mind those people that sprint past you because they do it everyday before and after work!!

As others have said this hike is challenging and can be quite difficult especially if you are not the fittest. Though the hike is long, tiresome and challenging it is rewarding and pleasing to say you conquered it. The hike is divided into quarters which are based on altitude of the hill not by the length which is misleading on... More

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
