Hiking Lynn Peak

Hiking Lynn Peak

Every month, I share a new BC adventure on the BC Adventure Girls blog. Last month, I explored the trails at West Vancouver’s Whytecliff Park. This month, I take to the North Shore with a challenging hike up Lynn Peak.



I have spent many hours exploring the trails of Lynn Headwaters Regional Park and the connecting Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. Norvan Falls, Rice Lake, Seymour Valley Trailway, and the trail leading to Lynn Canyon Park are my go-to hikes.

I have walked by the trail marker for Lynn Peak countless times and am always curious about the hike. A few weeks ago, my friend Trevor from Toronto was visiting. I figured it was the perfect time to try out the hike. I wanted to give Trevor a taste of the North Shore mountains and spectacular views, without getting totally wet in snow. Yes, there is still snow in the mountains in July! Lynn Peak was the perfect fit.

Climbing Lynn Peak is often compared to hiking up the infamous Grouse Grind, so be prepared for a relatively challenging hike. From a steady climb through the Enchanted Forest, to stunning views of Mount Elsay, Mount Seymour, Vancouver, and beyond it is a good workout with ample reward.


For a full recap, pictures, and highlights from the hike, visit the BC Adventure Girls blog.

  • While I love life on the west coast, it's never easy living on the other side of the country from many friends and family. Grateful for trips home, no matter how long or short (this weekend!) they may be. Back to YVR ✈️
  • Soaking up that Toronto sunshine ☀️
  • Had some of the best vegan food ever at @plantatoronto tonight! I've often been left disappointed (and hungry 😅) by new plant based eateries but this totally exceeded expectations. Loved all the dishes we tried from the cheesy queso dip (pictured here) to the peanut butter chocolate "terrarium" for dessert.
  • Springtime in Victoria #flashbackfriday meanwhile in Toronto... ❄️🌧☀️
  • Last night's surprisingly purple sunset, a welcome sight after a day of rain #tbt
  • From west coast to east coast (sort of! 😛) Toronto bound ✈️ where there is apparently a rainfall warning #cantescapeit
  • The ferry is fun, but these views can't be beat. YYJ ➡️ YVR ✈️
