A fantastic workout up to the peak. I have climbed the grind many times. Every climb is a challenge. Once at the top, the view of the city on a clear day is spectacular. There is a charge to take the gondola down to the bottom. There is food & drink at the top of the mountain as well as... More

Everyone should do the Grind ONCE, just so they can say "Yes" to anyone asking if they've done it, and "Been there, done that" to anyone inviting them to do it again. If you enjoy breathlessly climbing up a dark silo with someone's butt in your face and another's toes at your heels, then definitely do it for the bragging... More

It is a hard climb to the top and one should go well prepared at any time of the year. Dress properly (good hiking shoes a must) and take plenty of water. The workout is worth it, especially when you get to the top!

My boyfriend and I had done the hike in overcast weather but still had a blast. I'm not sure what we were expecting and although we hadn't woren suitable hiking clothing-- it was a great quick mission. As most of the hike in under the forest canopy, you don't always get great views but still worth a few photos along... More

In China you become a hero if you climb the Great Wall (and I've done it!) You'll be a different kind of hero if you climb the Grouse Grind in North Vancouver, The Great Wall climb itself is duck soup compared to the lung rasping torture that is the pathway to the restaurant at the top of Grouse and the...

Great experience. Did it in under one hour with my business partner. Beautiful views...water, trees, and mountain. Take water for the climb but the good news is there is food at the top observatory. Must take gondola back down for a small fee. Great Fun !!

We went up the Grouse Grind with my sister who lives there. Breath taking views and you can take your time . Get a map check weather and have a back pack with water etc. Then we took the gondola down. Research first and must have proper work out attire.

The Grouse Grind is a really trendy thing to do in Vancouver/North Vancouver. This is one thing that makes it so much fun. It's not just a hike. Everyone checks there watches or cell phone times at the bottom, then again at the top. It's all about the time you can do it in. But it's fun, heading up within... More

To say that you have done the "Grind" puts you in some elite company. Make no mistake, it is a tough hike. Too many people undertake it without adequate footwear or a supply of water. The hike is straight up with no flat or horizontal runs. It can be very crowded and the pace can be slow. Trail etiquette requires... More

This is a steep hike through forest on a mix of trail, steps and rocks. Don't underestimate this, but you'll feel great when you get to the top and the views at the top are fabulous. Was recently rated the 5th. most dangerous hike in the world, but those of us who do it frequently think that's a joke! Open... More
