Grouse Grind Mother Nature's Stairmaster Image by planetc1 A favourite with locals, the Grouse Grind is affectionately called “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster” because of its steep grade and total elevation gain of approximately 850 metres (2,800 feet). It is a thigh-burning hour-and-a-half trek, depending on your fitness level, but it’s an invigorating way to get a great workout and to take in stunning outdoor beauty in a short time.
