The Grouse Grind is stairs from the beginning all the way to the end. Generally pretty busy with all levels of Hikers and tourist walkers. A great climb at any pace. Must do for Vancouverites.

You have to do the Grind at least once in your life. It's a fun challenge and do not be daunted by things you have heard about it. Some people are more adaptable to a continuous uphill slog, while other people may be super sporty but not used to non-horizonal sports. Case in point; I took a fitness instructor who is over 10 years my junior up the Grind and I handily beat her. Even though she is more fit overall than I am, she is not much of a hiker. I wouldn't say the Grind is "fun" but it is just a must-do if you live here. The feeling you have when you reach the top is unbeatable.

Great hike but the 'trail highway' atmosphere ruins it for me . Too many people and their egos ... I'll stick to the trail-less-travelled.
