Summer time only This is a great way to get excercise times range from under 30 min to 50 for us. suggest use gondola going down or less steep longer Baden Powell to go down. Nice restaurants at the top..

Nice, steep hike with rewarding views on top. On the top is a chalet where you can buy drink or food. It can get real crowded on a trail!!

When it gets busy it is a complete nuisance. Despite lots of trail upkeep there is still no way to fix stupid people coming down, getting in the way, breaking ankles in high heels, and the reality that there is no view. And that they charge more and more to come down and to park. Top spandex environment though.

I've done this many times, and absolutely love hiking up ... even racing my previous times. But I can't bear the descent: it's hard on the knees! I prefer to pay to take the cable car thingy down. If hiking with newbies, take them to the gift shop ... some lovely local arts there. A great day out with ...... More

The ultimate leg and cardio workout. If you are fit, walk it. If you are super fit you can jog. The air is clean and you are in the shade of the tree canopy the entire time. It's an awesome hike. That said, this is NOT a hike for everyone. Small kids, people with balance issues or those with heart... More

Grouse grind is for all. Just don't wear your sandals or flat shoes like some of the tourists do. Bring $$ to take Gondola down as you'll likely not have the legs if you don't do this regularly (or aren't in excellent shape). The locals do it, I used to be, and so do all others just for the sheer... More

The thing about the grind is you can either take your time and enjoy it as a hike or you can push yourself to see how fast you can go I always choose the later of the 2 and have done it multiple times now and every time i hit the 1/2 way mark I'm like why am I doing... More
