Trail Map

Hike to the Lynn peak at Lynn Headwaters Regional Park in North Vancouver! As the trail is often a creek bed. conditions are very poor in some areas. Expect high traffic on weekends as this is a very convenient alternative to the BCMC trail or the Grouse Grind (except the return-trip is mandatory). See a few viewpoints on the way to the peak with views of both the Lynn Valley and Seymour Valley. The view from the top faces east and overlooks the Second Narrows Bridge.

I have been planning on hiking this trail for a while. According to the map it doesn't look like it goes all the way to The Peaks though. Does anyone who has hiked it know if you go all the way?

I have hiked the trail and no it doesn't go all the way. The actual "Peaks" are north by another stretch. The trail literally loops around and heads back at the viewpoint. I suppose you could bushwhack to The Peaks though. The elevation is relatively similar.

Did this trail today with my wife. The first half of the trail wasn't especially pleasant, as it was a jumble of loose rock from the creek bed and dust from the exposed area. After the 500m part, it got a little bit more picturesque. By the time we got to the Old Growth section, it was absolutely great. The view was nice but not what I was expecting. The way down was kind of sketchy, with all of the loose rocks (and steeper trail angle) causing some slippage problems for my wife. If you can work through the first half of this trail (both up and down), you'll be rewarded with a great hike.
