I plan to run power over to a detached garage. This will run in conduit from an apartment building (6 unit) over to the detached garage by way of a metal walkway/stairway. The garage will be grounded with it's own rod. Is this to code given that the conduit will be part of the grounding system?

Your information is rather sketchy. If you are dealing with a single branch circuit, I don't believe you need any additional grounding. If you are running power to a sub-panel, you'll need 2 ground rods.

How about a little more data?
