Going up Burke, it's probably the trail from quarry road to monroe lake. If by equivalent to the grind, you mean that the trail goes straight up the mtn with minimal views, yep, that's pretty accurate.
The eagle mtn trail from the north end of buntzen is longer, steeper, had has better views. I think I have a TR of that one (possible both) on my profile if you take a look.
