This is a one way only hike that is not only physically tough but mentally. Albeit there are markers to show where you are at in the hike, this can take a mental toll that you "can't do this", when you feel like you are...More

This hike is no joke-hard core! It was amazing if you are fit and want a challenging workout. Wear good, sturdy, non-slip shoes and bring water! Dress in layers and bring gloves. You will be sweating on the way up and quite chilly at the...More

We have just returned from our trip to Vancouver. If you’re active and fit try the Grouse grind. It’s a hard hike up the mountain, but a great achievement. There was still snow on the mountain and view from Top was poor due to bad...More

Near the top. I am astounded at the reviews of the folks who said it wasn’t bad but then getting lapped by a 6 year old so maybe I’m not typical. Two words: brutal climb. I’m a trim, reasonable level of fitness 51-year old. By...More

The location is close enough to Capliano suspension Bridge that we took the public bus to get here. It’s opened in till late which gave us enough time to rent our gear and have hours of fun.
