Approach



The Grouse Grind Trail starts at the parking lot of the Skyride. You'll see a sign for the Grouse Grind Trail.

Route Description

This trail ascends 2,800 feet in about 2 miles. The trail starts climbing through the forest right away. The roots of the trees act like natural stairs to guide you up the hill. Once in a while there will be an opening in the trees where you can see down into the Capilano Valley. Eventually the trail ends at the peak chalet. From here, follow the dirt road to the summit, pass the bear and wolf habitat. With luck, there will be an imprssive view that stretches from the mountains to the north, to Vancouver to the south.

Essential Gear

Water and good footwear is essential. The Grouse Grind is subject to closure after heavy rain, and is closed in the winter due to snow.
