The Grouse Grind is a difficult 1.5 mile hike that ascends 2000+ feet. It is slippery and wet--at least when we went there-- and somewhat crowded. It will take you longer than you think and you will be passed by people half your age while...More

Very busy in the summer. Great to calorie burn! It's steep so be prepared, bring water and a change of clothes for the top. Great views and stay for a drink at the top :)

No doubt that this is a slog even for your pretty fit individual. That being said, you feel amazing, proud of yourself, and ready for a beer once you have arrived at the top. The hike helps affirm how gratifying it is to be alive...More
