Grouse Grind Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Unrelenting. Painful. Steep. Slippery. Crowded. These are all thoughts you may have just in the first quarter of the difficult but short Grouse Grind. Nearing the end of the 2.9-km (1.8-mile) stair-climb, thoughts change to persevere and just finish.

The Grouse Grind is perhaps Vancouver’s most famous and busiest trail. Mostly because it packs a fantastic training wallop and is ever-so-close to the city, but also because its reputation precedes it. “The Grind” is a hiker’s rite of passage."
