The BCMC Trail begins just beyond the start of the Grouse Grind, and is harder than the Grind, if that's even possible. The BCMC Trail is very straightforward, made up mostly of natural steps built into the forest's stones and roots. When you reach the top of Grouse Mountain, the view of glistening springtime snow makes the challenging trek worth it. You cannot go back down the hike and must take the Skyride for $10 down.
