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

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

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

The best time to do this is early – we began our assent at 6:30 am (it opens at 6:15 am), and there were not that many people there. Note that it is best to have organised to bring your own water with you; there...More
