Holy Moly - IF I'd known how hard this was going to be I would have NEVER done it. That being said, I'm really proud that we made it. It's not for the faint of heart. It's long, and very strenuous. It took us way...More

On a total whim we had hopes of doing the Grind but it was still closed so we tackled the BCMC trail instead. It’s a relatively challenging trail with tree roots and rocks to navigate on slopes from 15-30 degrees, so in places it’s a...More

This trail is longer than the Grind, has less stairs, and is really challenging, especially if you're a beginner. I don't hike at all so I think I would qualify as a beginner. - I found the hand and footholds were not easy to find...More

Looking for a great hike when we were in Vancouver, our first choice was the Grouse Grind. It was closed for maintenance and a friend suggested we try the BCMC. It starts from the same point as the Grind and the elevation gain of 853...More

I hike this trail 2 or 3 times a week. It is extremely difficult, challenging and rewarding. The BCMC gains 900 meters in less than 3 km. The trail is rough, eroded, no real steps. My resting pulse is 50, I run 10 km in...More

People say its easier than the Grind, and it is, but it is also a little longer and way less crowded. If you are here to tick the Grind off your list then hike the Grind with the crowds but if you want a great...More
