Good hike. Pretty easy. We took a detour which made it longer and a tad harder. The view is good from the top.

loved the hike, not a fan of all the stairs lol

There is a high amount of foot traffic. Arrive early to find parking, and prepare yourself for lots of stairs. All culminates to a lovely view.

The town offers simple parks and gardens by the waterfront through which you can wander with ice cream, gelato, cinnamon buns, or doughnuts. Grab a seat after the hike and enjoy a beer and pizza, or rent a kayak for a few hours if you're up for more activities.

Worth a trip.

very touristy but a beautiful trail nonetheless :)

View is spectacular! The trail is not so clean with wet mud and big roots but with the challenge comes the reward. I

This is a no dog zone, because it’s part of the city water reservoir, therefore we couldn’t walk there.

Good first hike of the season, just enough incline to make it feel like a hike. Haven’t done this hike for a few years and was surprised by how busy it was in the middle of the week. Be ready for every other person hiking to be gripping their phones or texting as they are hiking. Also passed a few people with music blaring which just doesn’t seem to fit the surroundings.

Definitely get ready for an incredible hike. The mud made it so much fun. Watch the roots, but I would do this hike over and over. We took the dog and he loved it even on the leash. The shade, the views, the weather made this one of my favorite hikes. Not very busy on a Wednesday morning. Even the drive up was pretty.

Bring bug spray!!

amazing views

Will be great once the bridge is open again, but until then it’s not worth it - awkward, not well marked detour.

Nice easy walk through the woods; perfect for out of town guests who want a quick outdoor activity. Easy hike, great view. Can’t lose.

Took it with my kids and they all made it round trip!

A very rewarding hike. The trail is still very muddy, with snow still covering a decent sized section of the trail. Wear appropriate footwear! The trail is quite rocky, and covered in roots, so watch your step! The view at the top is stunning, and defiantly worth the hike!

Fairly easy route for a trail run. The first bit is fairly flat and smooth, while the second part gets a bit more rugged. It's a great trail to run with your dog since there is water along the entire route so they can cool off easily along the way.

Great hike. Did it today. Not much to add only that when we got out of car at the parking lot, we were attacked by a tons of tiny flies. Thought they might be mosquitoes at first but fortunately not. Don’t let it deter you as once we passed the info shed to start the hike, they all dissipated..

Grouse Grind Trail was closed for maintenance so we did the BCMC instead. Great hike. My mum and I hiked up in about 2 hours and then caught the gondola down for $15 each. Definitely recommend this hike, great views at the top and there heaps to see at the top like the Grizzly Enclosure and a bird show. Do not eat at the restaurant, not the greatest!

Good little jaunt with a great view at the end, bring a small snack/lunch and enjoy on the rock before heading back down again.

Me and my 61 year old mom did this today and for me it was not hard at all but she was very tired :) we did it very slowly, 4 hours from parking to top grouse, lots of breaks but this was quite a steep trail. We hiked with runner shoes, and no warm clothing, but it was a summer day, the forest keeps you cool.
for families or easier option I recommend Cleveland dam and capilano river.
over all great hike for forest lovers and the view from the top also amazing.
Sunday is crowded but not as the grind trail on the other side of the creek in grouse mountain.

We walked Dog Mountain today. There was a bit of snow at some places and a bit cloudy. When we got to the top we had a view. It was a nice day.

I did the trail today with my friend, we did three round of the trail, we ran totally 8.4km. Very easy trail and it took us 15-18 minutes for one loop about 2.7km.

Great view at the top but loads of people around on a sunny day. Do recommend going early morning to avoid rush hour and enjoy a beautiful sunrise. Lots of stairs!

Our family did yesterday June 23rd . First part to the Water Fall was easy , after Suspension Bridge was medium then hard but very beautiful and fun .

We went this morning. I recommend grippy shoes that you’re not afraid to get dirty, nice and muddy!

Nice, easy hike, but 75% still covered in snow which makes it a bit tricky at the moment. Overall beautiful scenery and two cute little lakes, but mosquitos...and LOTS of them. Not much elevation gain, so should be great to go shoe-shoeing in the winter.

This is a great hike to do if you're training for an extended trek like the TMB or other long distance adventures.
