Lynn Canyon Park offers a rugged west coast landscape nestled into the southern slopes of the north shore mountains. Lynn Creek drops rapidly through the canyon and there are a number of pools popular for swimming. There are also many walking and hiking trails that run through the park.

After a scenic crossing on the SeaBus from Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver followed by a 20 minute bus ride and a 10 minute walk brings you to North Vancouver's Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge in Lynn Canyon Park.

Popular with locals, but not as well known by tourists who usually end up at the better known and heavily promoted Capilano Suspension Bridge, this 'people only' foot bridge, built in 1912, hangs a full 50 meters above the rapids of Lynn Creek connecting the forest trail on either side. While this bridge is not as long or high above the water as the more famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, it does sway and bounce more making it very thrilling to cross. It is also completely free which is a nice bonus.

Although the bridge is old, you can be confident of its integrity as it is regularly maintained by the Municipality of North Vancouver which also operates the park.

Other activities in the park include hiking and picnicking. During the summer months there are guided nature walks also available in the park. If you get the munchies you can visit the Lynn Canyon Cafe located near the suspension bridge.

Lynn Canyon Park Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating The Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge is a must-visit attraction for anyone exploring North Vancouver. Spanning 50 meters across the stunning Lynn Canyon, the bridge offers breathtaking views of the rushing waters and lush forest below. The experience of walking across the bridge is both exhilarating and serene, providing a unique vantage point to appreciate the natural beauty of the area. However, the bridge and park can get quite crowded, especially on weekends and holidays. It’s best to visit early in the morning or on weekdays to avoid the crowds. Also, be sure to wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for some steep and potentially slippery paths.

5 Star Rating Such a beautiful place... The pool trail was closed because of construction so we weren't able to go there but the rest of the trail was good. Stairs are a challenge but doable.. water was a bit cold but definitely worth a dip ☺️❤️😍 would definitely come here when there is less crowd

5 Star Rating Beautiful Park with majestic trees and stunning views. The trails are well defined and although there are areas with many stairs, it is worth walking the trail and going down to the river. The tranquility and the smell of the trees, plus the sound of the water running from the river was a wonderful experience. You don't need to pay to enjoy this beautiful place because it is completely free. I recommend you to use proper shoes. Don't forget to visit the Ecology Centre, where I really enjoyed learning about the biodiversity of Lynn Canyon.

5 Star Rating Lynn Canyon was a very enjoyable trek for us seniors. Not very difficult but still challenging. The bridge cross is exciting both visually and physically. The trails are easy to walk and walking in nature is very relaxing. We had our little dog with us, and she really enjoyed the trail. Trail is free but you must pay for parking if you can find a spot. Definitely would recommend trying out this easy trail.

5 Star Rating Always a great pleasure to go to Lynn Canyon suspension bridge. With family, with friends it’s every time super enjoyable. Generally I’m always bringing a glass bottle to grab some spring water and I go for my promenade in the park. The park is just really clean and luxuriously green in every corner, a real delight through the day. I highly and strongly recommend Lynn canyon with the second most famous suspension bridge ;) and for free ;)
