Must do activity in Vancouver but it is definately a grind. Uphill the whole way and the 1/4 mark was heartbreaking but this is well worth the effort. Takes 45-90 mins depending on fitness. Bring insect repellant if you because you will get bitten if...More

I would not recommend the Grind for a hike. There is nothing enjoyable about it unless you are looking for an intense cardio work out. For first timers, try the BCMC trail first. It is a bit easier (without the huge steps) and ends in...More

This thing is tough. Period. For your first time take it easy. Wear hiking shoes or boots or you will do the 'descent of shame' . Grab a burger and a shake when your done.

Walk slowly up this mountain, and enjoy the scenery of the forest, and the sights of Vancouver city behind, worth the effort.

My mom and I did this hike, and it was more difficult then expected. From other hikes in the surrounding area, they all seemed more of a walk to us, so we took the challenge of the grind. We got there in the early morning...More

A great "hike", what a workout! There are no "flat" spots. The word "grind" is a bit polite to describe this trail, going up it you may use other non-polite words in your mind, LOL. I definitely recommend it, but I go to a gym...More
