Lynn Canyon, British Columbia. Canada (Pacific Coast Highway Roadtrip)

I woke up around 6 in the morning to get my car out from the hotel parking garage. It was 9 CAD to park until 6am and 25 CAD to park til 6pm. Seeing how I was up anyways, I forced Ben to wake up and pack up his things as well. Once we both put our things in the car, we headed off to Lynn Canyon.

Address: 3663 Park Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7J 3G3, Canada

For me, the attraction in Lynn Canyon was mainly the suspension bridge. There is another suspension bridge in Vancouver, located in Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, however that park has fees. Feel free to take a look and decide for yourself which is more interesting.

At 7am, we were one of the very few people first in the park on a weekday.

The suspension bridge is not too far from the parking lot and affords a nice view over into the river that runs below and the waterfall that feeds it.

From there, we decided to embark on a short loop around the park. The Baden Powell trail takes you along the river and if you cross back over the river, you eventually will find yourself back to where you came from.

Overall, our visit to Lynn Canyon Park was relaxed and the park is a nice place to visit if you're in the Vancouver area. The hike that we took was in no way challenging and very well protected by park staff to prevent any more fatalities from people walking too close to the edge.
