With the ocean on its doorstep and the Coastal Mountains keeping a watchful eye over the city, Vancouver is the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest.
Of that Coastal Range, the one nearest to the downtown core is famed Grouse Mountain, just a 15 minute drive from where the Lions Gate Bridge spans the Burrard Inlet. Over time, Grouse Mountain has become part of a local folklore, harkening back to an era when the only way up to the 1,100 meter plateau was via and unpaved back road…or by taking one heck of a hike.

Perhaps it is because of the tradition of trailblazing that Grouse Mountain has become Vancouver’s most popular destination for local and international guests alike. For the local, Grouse Mountain is a familiar presence on the Vancouver skyline and the city’s most popular attraction welcoming more than 1.3 million visitors each year. It is the only true 4 season destination in the Lower Mainland and features a wildlife refuge, vast selection of dining options, thrilling outdoor adventures, summer activities galore, the best local snow sports and much more.
One thing is for certain: There is no no place quite like the Peak of Vancouver.
