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.
