The governments of Canada and BC, in partnership with Metro Vancouver, are providing $3.5 million in funding for improvements to
Grouse Mountain Regional Park. The improvements, including a revitalized trailhead area, upgrades to the Grouse Grind Trail, BCMC Route and Baden-Powell Trail, viewpoints and rest stops, will be completed over a four-year period.
The improvements reflect the park vision of supporting ecological and human health by protecting and enhancing forest ecosystems, and by providing opportunities to learn about, explore and be active in a coastal mountain landscape. They relate to the goals and objectives identified in the
Grouse Mountain Regional Park Management Plan (2018).
Over the next four years, the project will provide improvements to existing popular trails and routes in the park (Grouse Grind Trail, BCMC Route and Baden-Powell Trail) and add additional connector trails to provide opportunities for individuals who may be looking for a less steep, less intense recreational experience.
The improvements also include engagement with First Nations and opportunities to learn more about the ecological and cultural aspects of the park through interpretive elements and programming.
In 2021, we've already completed some improvements to the BCMC Route, a steep 2.9 km route that has seen a lot of wear-and-tear from the elements and year-round use. This fall, we'll be making some upgrades to the ever popular Grouse Grind Trail. Please check the Grouse Mountain Regional Park webpage for the latest updates on trail closures or other important notices.
