Grouse Grind Trail
Located just a short drive from downtown Vancouver is Grouse Mountain. The Grouse Grind trail, also known as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster,” is the ultra-steep trail that climbs more than 850m in less than 3 km, traversing wooden steps, rocky terrain, and bridges along the way. The trail is a rite of passage among Vancouverites and the challenging ascent is rewarded with stunning views of the Vancouver skyline below. At the summit, there’s a mountain resort with a few restaurants and cafes to help you refuel and the Skyride Gondola to the bottom provides an opportunity to really soak in the beauty of the mountain, making Grouse Mountain one of the best things to do in Vancouver.
