This is was my most expensive outing in Vancouver. A return ticket to the top of mountain cost C$31.75 (including tax)! To get the most of out your money, attend the shows and displays that are staged on the mountain. You can watch a 'birds of prey' exhibition and watch lumberjacks chopping wood. There are, apparently, bears. They weren't very forthcoming, however, and one local explained to me that no-one had seen them for seven days!
Of course, the main reason for ascending to the top of Grouse Mountain is to take in the fantastic views of Vancouver and the surrounding region. The day I went up, it was clear and sunny and the haze over the city was the only detriment to an unobstructed view. The walk to the summit is steep and on a sunny day make sure you carry bottled water.

Address: North Vancouver.
Directions: Take Capilano Road in North Vancouver all the way north until it turns into Nancy Greene Way. Grouse is at the end of the road.
