August 27 Grouse Grind Hike with 20 lb Weight Vest

At least I made it to the peak of the mountain under 1 hour and 45 minutes. It was very tough going up the mountain with the obvious added 20 lb weight on my shoulders, plus my backpack with 3 bottles of water, but once you reach the clearing at the top, it makes it all worthwhile!

The Grouse Grind® Trail
The popular Grouse Grind® is a 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to by Vancouverites as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.” Over 110-thousand hikers a year take on the challenge of the rugged terrain and steep climb, starting at the Valley Station and finishing at the Peak’s plateau, for a total elevation gain of 2,800-feet. The average climb takes just over an hour, with beginners requiring up to two hours to complete the trek.

Length: 2.9 kilometres (1.8 miles)
Elevation Gain: 853 metres (2,800 feet)
– Base: 274 metres above sea level (900 feet)
– Summit: 1,127 metres (3,700 feet)
– Total Stairs: 2,830
Statistics: Annually, over 100,000 people hike the Grind™.
Average Time: On average it takes up to an hour and a half to complete the hike.
For novice hikers, up to two hours is recommended.
Participants: Hikers range in age from 7 to 90, with an equal male/female split.

Course Record
The official course record to date for men is 26:19 held by Michael Simpson set at the 2007 Grouse Grind Mountain Run®. For women, the record is 31:04 held by Leanne Johnston and set at the 2007 event. Unofficially (that is, a record set outside the annual Grouse Grind Mountain Run®) the course record is an amazing 24:22, set by two-time World Mountain Running champion Jonathan Wyatt of New Zealand. Jonathan set the record in June of 2004 while visiting Vancouver. The renowned runner has also participated in the Olympic Games and the Commonwealth Games.
