    This free, 600 acre park offers a number of experiences: a suspension bridge, many walking trails (short or long and of varying difficulty), waterfalls, swimming holes and picnic areas. The trails through the lush forest are clear and easy to follow with the map. The river provides a tranquil spot to sit for a while on the boulders. We had our lunch here, accompanied by Douglas Fir squirrels! The area seemed popular with locals and tourists alike. Amenities included toilets, ample parking, and Lynn Canyon Cafe. It was easy to reach the park using public transport from Vancouver city.

    FREE, as opposed to the highly-developed Capilano Bridge park area. We visited both. Totally different vibe. Lynn Canyon was much less traveled and thus much quieter. We enjoyed our hike here.

    Fantastic nature trail composed of stones and log stairs for 800m elevation over 3 kilometres. One hour is doable with no breaks if you are ok-conditioned. Sneakers are good at least if no rain. Fun fact: Canucks hockey player Daniel Sedin did this 11 times a day with average 1h/round.

    Having visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, out guided tour then took us up to the Grove Mountain Ski Area. We rode the Mountain Skyride for access to the top and found it all a great experience. At the top, we were able to purchase lunch (even if the prices seemed over the top) but wandered around to enjoy the views overlooking Vancouver as well as visit the 2 grizzly bears kept up there and went to the free lumber jack show which was entertaining with a real comedy theme running through it.
    Added to the morning trip to Capilano Park it made for a very good outing.

    This was one of my first hikes in Vancouver, and I have done it multiple times over the past few years. The hike is simple with steps to guide you through. It is free and great for friends, families, pets and even the elderly.
    In the end, the view is beautiful and peaceful.

    Hi Isaac and Bryn!
    My favourite zipline crewing of all times!
    Thank you so much for one of the best zipline experiences that I had in a long time. You really took great care of me and showed me the beautiful views of Grouse Mountain. I loved your stories on the seat lift and enjoyed spending time with you. To be exact 1 hour because we set the record to 5 ziplines in 1 hour!
    It was such a special trip.

    Have a great summer!

    AMAZING. I was flying in the sky like a bird. So freeing. Very nice guide. He was amazing pointing out things I didn’t know existed. I did not want the adventure to end! Wonderful flying over the Capilano Dam. I highly recommend paragliding at Grouse Mountain.

    Second time I've rented my bike from Endless Biking. Great communications right from the beginning, advising me on options regarding dates, bikes and packages. Very friendly and enthusiastic team, very happy with the complete package and service. Hope to come back some day.

    The only reference you need for exploring the outdoors in BC. John, the co-owner and Matt, my guide, were very attentive and in tune with my needs and requests. They showed a lot of flexibility and openness. A truly personal and bespoke experience. As a bonafide urbanite from the East coast, I booked this trip as a one-off to escape the pandemic, but I loved my experience so much that I am already looking forward to my next trip with Outdoor Explore Adventure.
