 icon-picture-o Grouse Mountain Hike / North Vancouver, BC, Canada

IMGP3812

It is a 1231m mountain which is in North Vancouver (near from the down town). In the winter, people have fun there for winter sports, and in the summer people have fun there for hiking. The sight from the top was the best amazing sight in Vancouver since I’v been here so far now. 😀 I recommend you go there around 4 & 5 pm, because at the time is bright, and you also can see sunset. The sunset was just EPIC.

It was a challenging one for me. Sooo many steps for 1hour&half! But in the end, I felt I chosen totally a great way..!
This is the entrance. It is just nearby a park that is for a Skyride terminal.
You will see a signal soon, after you enter the gate, and you need to follow the way to “Grouse Grind”.

When I saw the signal saying “1/4 MARK”, I was like “Oh no!! man! noo! still 1/4!?? NO! Please! No more steps!” haha, and I took a rest. When I was taking a rest, it was funny to see that some people had the similar reactions as mine. haha

When you see the signal “3/4 MARK”, you are almost there.

Everyone was sweat and tired and they breath like people do running, and when they looked each other, they couldn’t say “Hi” or “Hello”, but instead of that they smile and laugh. I knew what they meant, it was like “It’s very heavy! hey! Oh man! haha”.

Restaurant / Grouse Mountain, Vancouver, BC
There are some cafes and restaurants from cheap one to high class one.
If you need an energy, just charge it!

Eating and Drinking at a place that you can see the outside sight, should be your great moment in your life. I just drunk a cup of hot chocolate, it was just so good.
I think I will never forget the great taste and the moment.
