My wife and I along with our 9-year old twin girls recently had an opportunity to visit Lynn Canyon Park during a week's stay in Vancouver. That said, here was our takeaway:

ARRIVAL: You'll cruise through a residential area before turning a corner and before you know it, you've entered the park. Lots of paid parking (though not sure what its like during the summer months) and easy signage to follow once you begin your walk towards the entrance of the park. There are also washroom facilities onsite for those who need them before making your way over to the entrance.

THE BRIDGE: Not for the faint of heart, but all four of us loved the experience of walking over this beautiful bridge with the sound of rushing water below (and a cascading waterfall in sight to your right!). Please note, the bridge itself is fairly narrow, so hold on to both sides when you can, and slide past other visitors slowly when passing.

FURTHER ON: After the bridge, there is a trail that will take you all the way down to the water's edge for incredible photo ops, but definitely watch your step. The forest itself is stunning, fairy-tale like, and not too crowded for those seeking a tranquil moment. We spent about an hour here before heading back when it got late in the day.

VALUE: Its free! And all those looking for a suspension bridge experience minus the crowds and expense (i.e. Capilano), this is the place for you. As one resident put it, 'Lynn Canyon is visited by locals, Capilano is visited by tourists'. Lynn Canyon's bridge might not be as famous, grandiose or over the top like Capilano's, but not having to bump into people, hear a cacaphony of noise around you or queue up to cross the bridge are most certainly wins, not to mention being incredibly atmospheric.

THE BOTTOM LINE: A guidebook recommended Lynn Canyon to us, and we were glad to find this hidden gem. A budget friendly attraction that will give you the thrill of a suspension bridge park, minus the noise and crowds. Five stars, a beautiful North Vancouver attraction.

A really beautiful forest park with lots to see. Well maintained boardwalks and a lovely suspension bridge. Very dog friendly and great exercise. A lovely way to spend a day.

Cool place for a small hike and water. The cliff jumping people talk about is actually very dangerous! Do not recommend. Water is freezing cold but lots of beautiful trees and views.

This is a beautifully maintained park with easy and affordable parking, great trails and an amazing swimming hole at the 30 foot pond. The whole family had a fun day here.

I just read a review of the Capilano Bridge wherein the reviewer was aghast at the price [$30] I seem to remember thinking the same thing. $50 is nonsense and outrageous, no matter the reasons offered up . Thank god for Lynn Canyon! A great place for a walk and bridge out to your heart's delight. Make sure this stays FREE.
