Grouse Grind

 

The Grouse Grind is Vancouver, BC’s most popular trail.  Located in North Vancouver at the base of Grouse Mountain, the trail is so widely used that wooden steps were built on most of the trail to prevent erosion from further use.  This trail is not for the faint of heart, there are 2,830 stairs and has an elevation gain of 2,800 feet!

 

Reach the top of the peak and you can successfully say that you completed “The Grind”.  Then you can turn around and hike back down the mountain… just kidding!  At the top you can purchase snacks, shop, hike some more, or have lunch.  You can also purchase your ticket for the Gondola ride down the mountain.
