This trail is similar to the grouse grind but not as packed with tourist in flip flops and the aggressive get-outta-my-way-I'm-going-for-a-new-best-time spandex crew. For hikers who enjoy hiking for the solitude as well as the challenge. Trail runs somewhat parallel to the grind.

Easy transit access. The trail isn't exactly in amazing shape compared to it's neighbour, the Grouse. However it's easier in terms of steepness. Going down it is probably much more difficult (but not as tiring) It brings you to the same top as the Grouse so you have access to all the stores, events, restaurants etc. Decent trail at the end of the day, especially if you don't like loud busy trails and prefer to just enjoy nature!

Great alternative to the Grind. Don't tell anyone. It is about 20 minutes longer then the Grind; when you think you are at the top, there is still more to walk. The first half if the most intense and it levels out! !

Followed this trail up instead of doing The Grind. Pretty intense. You have to focus on where you're putting your feet a lot. Not really much of a view until you're actually at the top.

Amazing alternative to the grind, which can be too overcrowded. Don't do it if you don't like a challenge. Grab some food when you get up there!
