Myself and a group of people from my Vancouver office completed the Grouse Grind yesterday.
The Grouse Grind is a 2.9-kilometer trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.”
Base: 274 metres above sea level (900 feet)
Summit: 1,127 metres (3,700 feet)
Total Stairs: 2,830
Average Time: On average it takes up to an hour and a half to complete the hike. For novice hikers, two hours is recommended.
Participants: Hikers range in age from 7 to 90, with an equal male/female split.
