Very busy in the summer. Great to calorie burn! It's steep so be prepared, bring water and a change of clothes for the top. Great views and stay for a drink at the top :)

This is not a casual walk for a tourist in flip flops or high heels. The Grouse Grind is a legendary hike up Grouse Mountain. It is a short but steep hike that takes a average hiker over an hour to complete. If you are...More
