No doubt that this is a slog even for your pretty fit individual. That being said, you feel amazing, proud of yourself, and ready for a beer once you have arrived at the top. The hike helps affirm how gratifying it is to be alive...More

Managed to hike up the Grouse Grind yesterday at a decent pace, though was definitely not conditioned to run the 3.4km trail that just keeps heading up...I did it in 59 mins and that was tough, it was a beautiful clear day and around 14...More

We hiked the Grouse Grind! I'm a not-too-fit 55 year old. My husband and our 3 children (in their early 20's) hiked the Grind. It was pretty difficult for me, but thankfully my sweet family helped me throughout the climb. The rest of my family...More

The attraction of the Grind is that it is an outdoor cardio workout for people who live in North Van. Other than that, it's a tedious, litter-strewn slog up an uninteresting mountain packed with sweaty lycra-clad posers rushing past you, trying at all costs to...More
