Starting from the parking lot you are greeted with magnificent views of tall ever green trees. A short walk takes you to a suspension bridge with an awesome view of the river 100 feet below! Take a left off of the bridge and walk thru the old growth forest to a pond 10 minutes up the trail. You can swim... More

Its a bigger park and free! It also has a bridge similar to Capilano bridge but smaller. Its a long walk and its not always with smooth floors, so I wouldn't take my grandmother there, she cant walk very well, but besides from that... its lovely and free!!! In summer, people go in the water which is super cold, but... More

We went Sunday afternoon around 5:00pm so it wasn't crowded at all. If it was crowded, I could see how it would be really annoying. The trails are pretty narrow as well as the suspension bridge, but since we went so late in the day it was a pleasant experience.

It is not as grand as Capilano but beautiful nevertheless. It is quite a distance to travel and if you are strapped for time and have seen Capilano you can give this a miss

I have long loved Lynn Canyon Park. My first reaction was, "What a perfect place to visit with children". That was before I had children. I have visited with my daughters, and last year with my grand-daughter. I will happily go again and again. The suspension bridge is fun... and FREE! The walk down either side of the canyon is...

I live local to the suspension bridge and regularly run this area up to the conservation forest and sometimes up into Headwaters. There are routes for 30 minutes to 3 hours or more. There is the Pipeline road for bike and skate enthusiasts (start at the Seymour Forest conservation parking lot) that is about 11 km each way with no... More

Visited on Labor Day, Sep 1st; found a parking spot (all parking free unlike Stanley Park where they charge you C$3.50/hour) after driving through the winding roadside lots. Not a long walk to the main attraction: a 100 feet long suspension bridge over a 100 foot deep canyon with Lynn Creek roaring through. As this was a national holiday, the... More

You get the chance to be in the forest, in a lovely canyon with great hiking trails all in a very accessible part of North Vancouver. In fact it is on a bus line.
