More a really engaging and fun workout than a chance to view the scenery. I did it the first time and liked it so much I went up two days later again. As everyone else, I recommend making sure you can be there at the least busy times, because the constant navigation of passing is the only serious downside that makes me want to abandon it for the nearby bcmc trail. Also you can hike down the bcmc when you’re done rather than pay for the gondola and that’s a beautiful hike too!

The trail was steep, wet, and slippery all the way thru .. So use precaution!

The bridge was washed out and the only way across was atop a giant wet fallen tree (it was raining too) with fast cascading water underneath. Decided to turn back, although someone went across straddling the log on their bum. Still a pretty hike.

Love rollerblading here!!! Great for a run or a simple walk after work.

Beautiful scenic ocean views, gorgeous huge trees and mossy forest. I loved it here and look forward to going back! Well behaved dogs are allowed to be off leash which is fantastic. It's steep in some parts but really well maintained.

Great trail best hike for training ! Good physical and mental workout ! Work on your cardio before you go for a first time . The trail will
Humble you !

Great hike with a satisfying goal. if you're looking for a more challenging route, take a right up the hill when you reach the fork in the road. This will let you see some beautiful classic North Van scenery. It certainly is more of a challenge. You'll reach the waterfall in another hour once the paths rejoin. Once there, be aware of the crows! On the way back, take the other path for an easier route.

Good workout. Go early to beat the crowds

Prepare for this one, great workout and cardio, go at a constant pace, hard on knees. Most of the trail is covered by beautiful trees. Hardly any flat spots, overall enjoyed the workout.

Really nice trail. Not that hard.

Great workout! The trail is nicely shaded by trees. Be sure to spray on some bug spray. Bring some water and enjoy the hike. The gondola down is $15.

The direct trail to the lighthouse view point took less than 8 minutes. The view was OK. If the private gate nearby is open, enter the driveway and you'll be surprised how much closer the lighthouse is from there. Juniper point will also surprise you with a great view at the end.

Had a tough time, definitely recommend dressing appropriately and not wearing jeans. Bring plenty of water, and bug spray. The mosquitos would swarm when ever we stopped for a break, maybe that’s just good motivation to keep moving, haha.

Nice easy hike with a great reward if u can get right to the falls and have a refreshing swim.

a moderate hike with a nice view of the falls at the end, but one can go beyond the falls. Based on the info, going beyond the falls will encounter some challenging routes.

There's a shuttle that takes you from Canada Place to Grouse mountain and back. Challenging for me..I was out of breath numerous times so it took me 2 hours. Didn't help that the temperature was 27 and my husband and I shared a 500ml bottle of water..Refilled my water bottle so many times when I reached the top. Very important to bring water for this hike. No views along the way, but too busy watching my footing to see anything anyways. The first 1/2 was easier than the last 1/2. There were people on the hike as well, but not so many that it felt like I was following the or that I felt there wasn't enough space.

I enjoyed the feeling of relief and accomplishment when I finally reached the top. Saw bears, a bit of the lumberjack show and a bit of the movie.

Great hike to challenge yourself on! Busy trail but everyone knows the hiking etiquette and do step aside for the faster hikers. Beautiful up top and worth the effort. Will do it again!

My wife and I did this trail with our 2 kids (8yrs & 10yrs) in about 80 minutes with lots of little stops along the way to rest and take pictures. This trail was on my wife’s bucket list for quite awhile and certainly did not disappoint. Our kids felt a great sense of accomplishment when we all reached the top. Our next challenge for ourselves when we tackle the Grouse Grind again will be to climb up to the top, take the BCMC trail down and then climb back up the Grind again. Very doable. My wife and I bought Grouse Grind T-shirts. Lol

Really hard and challenging hike.

nice easy hike it was perfect fir a rainy day. Came across only few people.

to many people and no dogs ! good workout but def not my fav and prefer the bcmc trail next to it for dog friendly less people . tougher and longer!

A gruelling hike up to the summit and all the while quite a large step for anyone short as I am. Remember to bring lots of water and take it easy. The trail can be slippery when it rained recently. Always worth going up to watch the lumberjack show.

Very steep trail, took about an hour for me, as I took a few breathers along the way. Trail can be very busy, but that can be nice if you aren’t looking for a back country hike.

Went during the week, not overly busy. Spectacular views. Very easy ride.

Rented a bike while out here and it was the highlight of my time out in YVR. Beautiful views, particularly at sunset. Lots of people but I imagine during the week it’s not as saturated with folks standing around and causing a little bit of a traffic jam. Regardless, can’t wait to come back and do it again!

Great hike, not challenging in regards to the terrain but the length does make it a challenge. Beautiful forest walks, boardwalks and a stunning waterfall makes this a fabulous hike destination.
We walked the road back instead of the Baden Powell, which seemed to be easier for the route back.

Great hike!! Definitely prepare to sweat but was well worth the views!
