Grouse Mountain

Known as both a resort and an attraction, Grouse Mountain is a popular North Vancouver year-round mountain playground. There’s no better view of Vancouver’s North Shore and the city of Vancouver than the one you’ll see from the famous Grouse Mountain Skyride, an aerial tram that ferries visitors up the mountain 365 days a year.

There are activities throughout the year as the Peak of Vancouver transitions from summer playground to a magical winter wonderland.

Grouse Grind

 

The Grouse Grind trail takes you through steep and rugged terrain from the North Vancouver plateau to the glorious Grouse mountain peak. The trail is only 2.9 km long, but it is very challenging with 2,830 stairs and an elevation gain of 2,800 ft. You can understand why “The Grind” is a favourite spot for locals to improve their fitness level in a hurry. On average you can expect the climb to take up to an hour and a half to complete, depending on your fitness level, novice hikers should allow up to two hours.
