Follow Highway #1 (Trans-Canada) to North Vancouver, taking exit #14 for Capilano Road North. Follow Capilano Road to it's northern end, at the base of the Grouse Mountain Skyride. Both pay parking as well as free parking along Capilano Road is available.
The 232 and 236 busses operate to the Grouse Mountain parking lot daily. For bus schedules and information, visit the Translink website.
Begin at the gate and join the crowd ( usually ) for a steep climb up the side of Grouse Mountain. This is a great trail for a workout and a fun hike but not for the solitude of the wilderness experience. Please allow adequate time to complete the route and heed all warning signs posted. Be prepared: bring water, adequate clothing, food, and a headlamp for emergency lighting. The Grind is a rugged mountain trail subject to changing conditions !
Once you make it to the top you can return via the Grouse Mountain Skyride down to the base for a fee of ten dollars as normal descent is now prohibited by the mountain resort.
