Only do this with a friend and not on a hot day

The challenge is a high. Bucket list type of event. Once you do reach the top take in your achievement by soaking up the view of Vancouver. Spectacular.

One of my favorite things to do in Vancouver. 2.8 km straight up the mountain. Fantastic work out. Our kids loved it too. Ages 10, 12 and 15. Must ride gondola down. $10/person. Highly recommend for people who like to hike and want a workout.

if you want to burn some calories after a night of burgers beer and cake then go ahead,if its foggy your not going to see much anyways as the trail goes through cedar and fir trees. Your looking for the end of the trail hoping its going to end soon so do it once then you can scratch it off... More

You have to be in a good shape to do the whole Grind, where a good pair of shoes. I have seen a lot of people rescued because they thought they could do it. Don't take a chance.

The Grouse Grind is a great, unique thing to do on a trip to Vancouver. As a 24 y/o who exercises daily, this was a tough workout, yet I believe it is manageable for anyone who stays in shape. Despite finishing in a relatively good time, I certainly underestimated it. I was suprised by how heavily I was breathing quite... More

The grind is awesome! If you're visiting Van or a resident, this is a great way to push your fitness level to the max. Be warned, if you've spent the last 6 months sitting on the couch this will be beyond difficult! I run great distances daily and still thought my heart would beat out of my chest. Take water,...

It's about 3kms up with some areas having steps and some areas with rocks but it's exciting. Try to go there before 10am so you're not trying to hike with tourist just taking their time enjoying the view. Plus it's not so hot before 10am. They made new changes to the trail, better steps and rails to hold on to.... More

We went to Grouse Mountain just to do the Grind! It was tough, it was fun and it was absolutely gorgeous. We took it slow and easy, but I'd love to go back and do it again. Only for the seriously fit though.

This is a great workout. If you hike or workout regularly, you will be fine. Just bring water and money. There are a lot of people doing this hike, so it's not exactly peaceful, it can be noisy, and if you're the same pace as another group/person, it can be annoying. At the top, the views were nice, and there... More

I saw the reviews of people saying how hard it was, but I still underestimated it. Mostly I'd just suggest to be prepared for this hike, especially if you're spending the rest of the day on the mountain afterwards. Bring a spare shirt, you will be very sweaty (I had to buy a new shirt at the peak), if you... More
