It’s the news many avid Grinders have been waiting for – the re-opening of the Grouse Grind®. Metro Vancouver crews have been hard at work completing seasonal maintenance, and they’re putting pedal to the metal to ensure the Grouse Grind re-opens at 4am on June 21st; just in time for the annual Multi Grouse Grind
The BCMC Trail, which shares the trail head with the Grouse Grind, remains open, and has provided a great alternative during this maintenance closure.
The Grouse Grind® is a 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.” The trail is cooperatively supported by Grouse Mountain Resort and Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. With 2,380 steps, and 853 metres (2,800 feet) of elevation gain, the Grouse Grind is thought by many to be a Vancouverite rite of passage.
