We took several paths The first was over the suspension bridge followed by the Thirty foot pool and the Rice Lake loop trail, finishing up back at the parking lot via the Twin Falls trail. The many steps up and down would not be appropriate for anyone in who is not in good physical shape.

Lynn Canyon Park has been our favorite place for family outings, hiking, quite nature, spectacular water and trees. We've used this park for 35 years and brought every guest here to experience the beauty, the nature and the hiking.

Our house backs onto the park and I'm in there two or three times daily with my dog. It is a beautiful park and well maintained. My biggest problem is the summer when it's open to the public and there are cars parked all the way down the road and many on the local streets. Many people are just there... More

This small park was found through word of mouth as being a much smaller, but free alternative to the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge. Capilano is still a must-do, but this small park should be the after-party. While the little suspension bridge is rather crowded and small, the scenery can't be beat. The bridge hangs over brilliant blue cascading water behind... More

the suspension bridge is amazing as you watch the locals jump from the rocks into the water below...my kids grew up in Lynn Canyon and it was the best place to raise kids

This place has the free suspension bridge in North Van – unlike the Capilano bridge which is very touristy. (I used to work there many years ago.) A great place to walk dogs or simply go for a walk yourself. Lovely walks in the woods or along a trail. Kids sometimes jump off a small cliff into the river. Don't... More

Lots of trails to lose yourself in Mother Nature on the North Shore. Fresh air, great scenery and well marked paths to hike for an hour or three.

I have spent there over half a day with friends. Park is great. So many hiking trials, waterfalls and ponds with extremely cold but crystal clear water. We were cliff diving over there. Great place. Suspension bridge over there is amazing and views breathe taking. I will visit this place again someday. True gem.

Beautiful area, with trails to suit most abilities...I would err on the side of caution as far as ability goes, though, as certain trails marked as easy can include some steep inclines, stairs, and uneven terrain. I didn't have any issues with this, but encountered an elderly couple who were clearly struggling down a steep incline and were only half... More
