Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

Lynn Canyon Park is a free self-guided adventure and a great place to learn about North Vancouver’s eco-system. Although the main attraction is the suspension bridge, people also enjoy hiking the surrounding boardwalks and trails. Rangers are on site in July and August to to offer walking tours and information about the area’s flora and fauna.

Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

A different experience than its complement the Capilano Suspension Bridge, the Lynn Canyon suspension bridge is 40 metres (130 ft) long and offers a rustic and jiggling adventure. The wooden plank bridge was originally built in 1912 and is just wide enough for two people to pass each other. The Suspension Bridge is about 50 metres (167 feet) above the beautiful clear pools and rivers of Lynn Creek and is situated amongst a 616 acre temperate rainforest. This community treasure is a public park, open year-round, and managed by the District of North Vancouver.

* The parking lot can get full very quickly at peak times. We recommend visiting at off-peak times like weekdays or early morning and traveling there by public transport or bike to avoid parking and traffic backups.
