140 Communities of Metro Vancouver: West Lynn


Suspension bridge time.  This will be Walk'n'Snack walk #6 so there'll be a lunch after the walk. I enjoyed my meal at George's (Lonsdale Quay) after the Upper Delbrook walk.

For those who like: parks, trails, residential and suspension bridges

Starting Time: start meeting up at 2 - walk starts at 2:15.

Getting there: the #228 from Lonsdale Quay arrives at 2:11. The #210 (from downtown and Phibbs Exchange) also stops about a block from the starting point.

Cancelled If: It won't be.

Pace: No walker left behind (because we can't lose anyone in Lynn Canyon Park). However, I do have a plane to catch that evening so no excessive dawdling please.

Distance: 10.2 km

Time:  2 1/2 hours? (depends on pace).

Elevation Gain:  down 90m and then back up 90m by the 6 km mark. Then down 180m. This walk takes place in North Vancouver.

Washroom Break: Lynn Canyon Park

After Walk Meal: George's (or other Lonsdale Quay eatery)

The end of the walk: Lonsdale Quay.

    An excellent walk, with great company and good weather. What could be better?

    Hi Allison. If you are getting off the bus at King Edward & Arbutus, I can pick you up at the south west corner at that intersection. Let me know if you still want a ride. I will be there around 1:15/1:20.

    • Allison

      Thank you so much for the ride, and truly enjoy talking to you.

      August 9, 2014

    • Lyn P.

      You're more than welcome! No problem. I didn't see you after we ate, so assumed that you caught the seabus & connected to skytrain. Hope to see you on another walk.

    Hi Joel do you still need a ride? I can pick you up, but it would be easier if you could be at Broadway & Oak as I'm picking someone else up there as well. On the south east corner in the 7/11 parking lot around 1:30.

      Hi Lyn, Thanks so much for the offer - I had to cancel out due bad knee unable to handle loads of stairs - maybe next time!

      August 9, 2014

    • Lyn P.

      Ok Joel. Too bad. Take care

      August 9, 2014

  • Lyn P.

    My car is white. See you there. If you could walk down King Edward about 1/2 block there is a driveway called Parkway & I could meet you there. It is an easier spot to stop at & I will come out at that driveway.

  • Lyn P.

    If anyone still needs a ride, I am driving - coming from the Arbutus/King Edward area of Vancouver.

      Hi Lyn, I am sorry I misspelled your name.

    Hi, how hard is the walk/ hike ? Is it quite a fast pace or more leisure.?

    August 9, 2014

    • Anita B.

      I wouldn't call it leisurely. Dave tends to keep a fairly quick pace, although for this one, he'll wait for stragglers ("no walker left behind").

  • Liz H.

    Sorry for the last minute cancelation but I seem to have injured my ankle somehow...enjoy this beautiful day.

    Planning to hop on a bus over to the Harmony Arts Festival at Ambleside Beach after if anyone wants to come with...

      Hi, Candace. I was thinking the same thing. I may join you for a bit.

  • Joel

    Dave, Are there alot of stairs on this hike?

    August 8, 2014

    • Dave S

      Yes, lots of stairs. The good news: they're mostly downhill.

      August 8, 2014

    • Joel

      Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I'll have to back out due to a bad knee and hope to catch the next hike.

      August 8, 2014

  • Joel K.

    can someone be kind enough to let me know if we are going on the bridge what the cost will be, thanks. Coming from NW if someone needs a lift.
    Jay or Joel:)

    • Dave W

      The Lynn Canyon Suspension bridge is free.

      August 8, 2014

  • Dave S

    Hastings Creek Park is chockablock with roots and rocks (much like Lynn Canyon Park). Nothing difficult but you'll need to be careful not to trip over them.

    August 8, 2014

  • Dave S

    Testwalk completed. A few photos uploaded. I didn't spot the trail into Greenwood Park so it looks like we'll be following the Grand Boulevard rather than Lonsdale.

    August 8, 2014

  • Joel

    Hi, Is anyone driving from Vancouver that can offer a ride, along Broadway or Skytrain station?

    August 8, 2014

  • lou

    I am sorry that I have to cancel because something come up.

    August 8, 2014

  • Denwa B.

    Going to try to make this one, chances are good, although I'm walker number 13!!!
    Dun-Dun-DUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNN!

  • Brenda

    Where do I park my car? at Lonsdale Quay? unclear where the starting point is.

    August 6, 2014

    • Dave S

      Starting point is Lynn Valley Road @ Dempsey Road. You'll either have to ride the #228 back to your car or find another person who's driving and park at the start and end points.
