If you’re a weeknight (Grouse) Grinder here’s a quick heads-up: You’ve got less time to do it, starting on Monday.
Beginning on October 2, the Grind will be closed an hour earlier each evening, at 5:30 pm.
“With sunset coming earlier at this time of year, the closing time for the Grouse Grind will also change to an earlier time,” said Metro Vancouver in a statement.
For early-morning rise and Grinders though, the opening time of 6:15 am will remain the same.
Over 150,000 people hike the popular North Shore trail – commonly nicknamed Mother Nature’s Stairmaster – annually and more information on the Grouse Grind can be found here:
