Grouse Grind.

Grouse Grind was on the top of my list of things to do in Vancouver. I got there by bus, seabus & another bus! Lol. It took my mum & i roughly about 2hours plus to reach Grouse Mountain. It should have only been an hour plus but because i took the wrong bus we ended up making one huge round before finally getting off at the correct stop! So, do ensure that the bus you take is the EXACT one even if it is the same number(they have different names behind the bus number such as 22 KNIGHT, 22 MACDONALD etc.) Or just ask the bus driver first before tapping your card!

Anyways, the hike was fun but really painful on the legs. A really good workout for the legs though! As it was drizzling early in the morning, the trail was wet & slippery. My mum has a fear of heights so she kept going all the way without looking back. Also, she didn't take much breaks. She kept going! We finished the hike in 1hr22mins! The fastest person to complete the grind did it in 23mins!!! An average person takes about 1hr30mins to finish.

It is forbidden to climb back down the mountain. The only way down is to take the gondola which cost $10! There is a cafe up in the mountain so don't worry about food & water! There are many other activites up the mountain which you can view at their website here!
