Our friends suggested this walk. It's a strenuous hike up a mountain, the paths are good but it's tiring and not for the unfit or young. You can take the cable car up but the Grind is the challenge so why would you? Fabulous views...More

I took both my 50 year old mother and father separately on the Grouse Grind and they both loved it. It’s certainly a challenge going up but snacks, water and good footwear make it all the easier. I recommend this challenge for anyone visiting the...More

Summed up very well on previous reviews. I did it in around 45 mins, passing 20 or so people on the way up, having started at 8am on a weekday. I chose to make it tough and go at a quick pace for my ability....More

As the website shows, this is hard. You go seemingly straight up a mountain, with 2,830 steps. Nice facilities (food, store, washroom) at the top and bottom, and not in between. It’s up-only, so once you start, you have to finish. Absolutely bring water. Probably...More

Don't be scared about doing The Grind, if you are anyway fit you can do it but do it at your pace, it's not a race unless you want it to be. My wife and I did it as a spur of the moment idea...More

Take ur time and enjoy the hike. I did it as fast as I could. U can do it! But definitely take water. And buy a t-shirt at the top - gives the specifics -3000 steps, etc. Have fun!
