It is short and breathtaking hiking,quick and useful.ido three times week and really like it.

I’d say this trail is more moderate than easy. It would be easy for the fit seasoned hiker, so overall a more moderate-easy for the average joe. There are a large amount of stairs initially, then more nearer the middle and a ton near the end of the hike downwards which you then have to come up on your way back. The only downside is how heavily trafficked the trail is.

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!

Hiked down after coming up the Grind. It is so beautiful and challenging in a fun way, requiring a level of concentration. It’s much less crowded than the Grind. Looking forward to going up another time!

My favourite solo hike

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.

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. Near the summit there are 35-45 degree rocks to climb, kind of sketchy when wet.

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.

Easy and dog friendly

A beautifully maintained trail around a lake. Some people were fishing, others were on canoes. The trail is flat and easy for everyone. The trail loop itself takes about 40+ minutes to complete.

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.

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.

Did it right after the grouse grind. Took less than an hour from the chalet go, and 30 min return. Fun run.

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.

Hard hike. Short. Fun going up but no great scenery reward from that grind upwards.

Great hike. very challenging but a great reward at the top.

This was a good hike. Almost 3000 feet of elevation from top of St. George's Ave. I cut off the top part by scrambling up Mt. Fromme trail. It's newly marked by some NSR volunteers. However...steep. On all 4's going up, but my dog (husky) made it. Going down would be challenging. Impassable in winter I imagine. Take lots of water. A good go.

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.

An excellent hike for those who enjoy the challenges which Grouse Grind won't be able to provide. Not only challenging to go up, but it is also challenging to come back down. This hike will give you enough training on your agility, core, endurance, and patience. In addition to all the abovementioned, it also has one of the best views of the city.
Overall, Lynn Peak Hike makes Grouse Grind a little boy.

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.

This was an easy-moderate hike. Lots of stairs but not too steep, with soft and mossy trails in between. The view at the end is worth the short hike (36 minutes one way on a very relaxed pace).

I really enjoyed this trail. So much nicer than the Grind. Same difficulty but less steps and more scrambling. It took me about 10 min longer than Grouse Grind took me last year. There’s less traffic, more choices and my short legs were happier because I could take smaller steps (just more of them). I will definitely be choosing this trail to the top of Grouse Mountain again.
