The Grind is not a trail – it’s a social phenomenon. On evenings after work and on weekends, this trail, which heads straight up the mountainside just east of the gondola, sees hundreds of walkers, looking for a good burn as the trail climbs 853 m (2,800 ft) in 2.9 km (1.8 mi). If you do the math, that’s about 1 metre up for every 3.4 metres traveled, which makes this a good cardio-workout. This partially explains the high traffic the trail sees. Another important element in the Grind’s popularity is the fact that there is a restaurant at the top and you take the gondola (for a fee) back down. The trail has seen lots of recent improvements and is literally one long wooden and rock staircase. It is also closed in winter.

The view from the top was well worth this grueling hike up Grouse Mountain.
