Difficult straight up trail. Challenging but getting more difficult as it keeps getting busier every tourist season. Upside is store/restaurant at top and you can treat yourself to a latte at Starbucks when done!

This trail is so amazing . It feels like you will never get lost when you find this one .

I wasn't prepared for this since I caught snow at the top but I had my ice trackers to throw on my runners( something I like to keep in my back pocket for any mountains) ...and I brought my little out door cooking set and heated up soup and pulled out some home made bread ..... it was extremely windy up there( still mastering outside cooking though ) I would do it again in a heart breat though.

I have a love hate relationship with this hike. It is a relentless climb. From the first stair there is no level or down hill sections. 2.5kms of pure leg torture with 2650ft of elevation gain. Choose this hike if you are looking for an intense workout and not so much about the views along the way. It’s a VERY busy trail too so be ready to hike with lots of company.

Found this quite boring and the view not worth the effort. Go to Seymour, Quarry Rock or Cypress for better hikes nearby.

Great workout, started snowing towards the top, beautiful workout and a jolly time to have some hot cocoa and poutine fries as a reward :)

Good climb! More difficult in the rain and wind. Be prepared to return back down or the BCM trail if lift is closed.

A workout. That's all.

Definitely hard but the feeling of accomplishment and the view at the top is worth it! It's a lovely change getting to explore Grouse Mountain when it's not covered in snow. However, be aware that there were a lot of mosquitoes at the top.

This was my first trail ever, it was hard, took me 2:45 to complete, but the average for others seems to be around 1.5 to 2 hours. it was worth it.

I loved it, I loved it!!!
Hard but not impossible, just pace yourself, bring lots of water, a few pieces of chocolate too and just keep on going, steadily. A good challenge, this trail is very well marked, and a good leg workout and at the end of it, the views are so rewarding. Treat yourself with a beer on the patio and don't forget to visit the bears. I will most definitely do this again.

Would have given this one a 3.5 or 4 but what a bummer you can't take dogs. Stairs are high, view is good and you've got to do this hike at least once in your life, but it's busy and there's a lot of hype - there are so many great hikes in BC I wouldn't call this one my favourite.

Good workout for legs! Very busy on weekend
I returned down by BCMC, watch for the markers it’s easy to lost the trail (been there..)
Nice view of city and Capilano river at the top (if you walk further)

Amazing trail .

This was a tough one but rewarding for the view and activities at the top!

I'm a fairly novice hiker and I hiked this alone so I took my time and it took me 1h 24m. If you don't like stairs, you will hate this.

Make sure to stay for the free lumberjack show! It's pretty entertaining.

Note that you need to take the gondola down as there is no down-hiking.

I would do it again to see if I could beat my time.

Great workout, good view at the top!
