It was a bit difficult for me but I liked it because you get a lot of exercise and also it was definitely fun but a little bit too hard for me

Definitely hard. If your not used to stairs just use the gondola to go up.

This trail is the Grouse Grind with an extension via the Heavens Sake ski run to the peak of Grouse Mtn. By adding this ski run, you can turn the grind of the Grind into a much more enjoyable hike. After the Grind, you will pass by the touristy section where you can visit the bears, grab a snack etc. before you move on to Heavens Sake. This trail is smooth and quite steep; not overly hard but you do add a fair bit to your overall elevation. The views from the top are 360 and with clear skies, you can see the Lynn Headwaters backcountry to the north quite clearly. Great views of the Lower Mainland as well. If you have a skyride pass, you can take the chairlift down from the peak for free. Although to be honest, they don't even seem to ask to see the pass when you go down. You just get on. Time this for when the sun is setting for a beautiful ride down.

The first time I did this hike, it kicked my a**, but I made it the top and felt a sense of accomplishment. First timers, it is rated a hard hike for a reason, but don’t give up. When you reach the top, it is so worth the effort. I usually go in the summer, July and August, and it can get pretty crowded, especially on weekends, and the trail is pretty narrow all the way up, but people are courteous to each other and patient with people who go at a slower pace. I am not athletic but fit, so it usually takes me ~75 minutes to complete.

As of today June 22nd, Grouse Mountain is now open. Check the website for details about a new reservation system for the skyride. Without a reservation, wait times for a download could be quite long. (or maybe with one too ;)

Difficult but worth it once complete. We hiked while it rained the whole time. It was slightly slippery but cooling at the same time. We do not hike very often but completed it in 1 hr 30 min.

Super challenging, thus rewarding! Once you hit the 1/2 way point, you must continue upward to top. Steps the entire way. Narrow path

This option takes you all the way to the top of Grouse to the windmill. Make sure you check out the Grizzly Bear sanctuary on your way up!

Going to the wind turbine viewpoint after such tough trail is a cool experience.
