Loved this trail. It's got quite a lot of steps spaced out but can be done comfortably if you walk several times a week. Takes under 2 hours return trip. Locals we met advised to go on weekdays as the trail gets VERY busy with hiking groups at the weekend. Check out Honey's in the village for a light lunch. Definitely worth hiking.
ItÂ´s always about what to expect. For those who want to do a nice hike up some mountain the grouse grind doesnÂ´t have much to offer. For those who want to do a workout outside it might be a challenge.
The grouse grind is a steep, quite muddy way up through the woods, full of people and full of garbage. On top of the mountain waits a stand for beaver tails and you can buy lots of other expensive tourism stuff. And: youÂ´re not allowed to hike the whole thing down (because of all the people coming up), so youÂ´re supposed to pay for the ropeway down. All in all: A huge disappointment. I give two stars only because it can be physically demanding.
