Hike Lynn Peak (Lynn Headwaters)

Hi Everyone! Lets hike up to Lynn Peak on Saturday Morning! This hike should only take about 4 hours return so you'll still have the rest of your Saturday afternoon / evening.

The trail to Lynn Peak is a challenging hike in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park but the view from the top makes the climb worth the hard work. Lynn Peak is sometimes compared to the Grouse Grind as it offers a great cardio workout but is much less crowded.

      Sorry Phil. There were a few no shows and a couple people changed their RSVP to "NO" at the last minute. Hopefully you'll be able to join us soon.
