if you visit grouse mountain, take the stairs not the skyride! - You can walk up the mountain, but they don't seem to advertise it very much so I think they keep it quite for locals. its a hard climb and it is a constant. you can stop and take a breather but you do need to be fit, you... More

Don't be a fool! The Grouse Grind is not for the overweight weekend warrior, those with heart issues or anybody without a strong cardiovascular base. Ride the tram up if you're new to town and of below average physical fitness. It is a serious hike and people die on it every year I can remember. It astounds me how many... More

This was in my 2016 bucket list of things to do. The course is challenging but doable. Make sure you have good comfortable shoes and a bottle of water. It is very busy going up the mountain but it didn't take away from the experience. I would love to do it again

My wife and I really enjoy taking hikes on our vacation. This one is truly memorable. You will remember the 2,830 steps to climb 1.8 miles. We are average hikers and started out about 9:00 AM and finished around 11:00 AM. We took a feel breaks to catch our breathe and to enjoy scenery. The best part of this hike... More

You'll regret it all the way up, but have a massive sense of achievement when your done. We're fairly unfit average weighted people (hardly ever visit a gym but try staying a little healthy) we made it up in just under 2 hours. Plenty of stops lots of sweat but an enjoyable experience. Both old, young, fat, fit and even... More

The trail it's self was so beautiful. The hike was so hard, if you have read that there are more then 2000 stairs thats right. The rock steps are so hard. I think that this hike was good but not made for kids under 5. It took me about an hour and 20 minutes. This hike is great for doing... More

You want a good cardio workout, the look no further. When planned and safe 2.9km walk straight up the mountain. Enjoy a meal once you're on top and enjoy the ride back to the parking lot. Small fee for the ride down but you will love the view. Bring an extra shirt to change into after you have cooled down... More

Didn't think I'd be doing this, but when I saw the big sign with all the warnings, I knew it was for me. Tough going after a massive trade show week down in Vancouver. I'd packed water, dressed for a walk, ready to go. Challenging hike in under the pine canopy away from the sun. It got VERY steep at... More

This is a challenging hike - which if I was a local would be excellent regular exercise in the summer. Make sure you pack some water and I would take a hand towel (if you sweat like I do!!) The view from the top is stunning and there is a place to eat which did a nice burger (guilt free!!)... More
