Overshadowed by the hype and fanfare of the nearby Capilano Suspension Bridge, Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, also in North Vancouver, is Capilano's zero-cost, more humble, locally oriented, unknown little sibling, and it is definitely worth a visit.

The cable suspension bridge was built in 1912 and spans 50 meters above Lynn Creek (Capilano is 70 meters above the Capilano River). It connects the key trails east-west within 250-hectare Lynn Canyon Park. Only a meter wide, the bridge is notoriously bouncy, making it less than ideal for those afraid of heights, but the views of the canyon and waterfalls below mitigate most visitor trepidation.

While visiting the bridge, be sure to explore the rest of the park's key attractions including:

  • Twin Falls
  • Pipe Bridge
  • 30-Foot Pool Swimming Hole
  • Blue Pools
  • Baden Powell Trail (traverses the entire North Shore mountain range)
  • Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre (open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekends from noon to 4 p.m. Call 604-990-3755 for details)
  • The Lynn Canyon Cafe (open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 604-984-9311 for details)
