Archive:The Grouse Grind 2009
Sunday, October 18th, 2009
Come out for a dayhike to complete the Grouse Grind! Grouse Mountain is close from Vancouver and the hike will probably take 1-2 hours to complete. It will be a strenuous hike but a simple trail up to a great view of Vancouver city. If you want to go out but don't have time for an overnight trip, if you are new but keen to try the outdoors, or if you want to take on the challenge of the famous Grouse Grind...this trip is probably for you. You can find out more about the Grouse Grind at http://www.grousemountain.com/Summer/summer-activities/vancouver-bc-hiking-trails-trips/grouse-grind.asp
We will leave in the morning and probably arrive back at Vancouver in the afternoon, times can be discussed.
We will meet at the Grouse Grind trail head on Grouse Mountain at 9 am.
