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.

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.
