Here is some information taken from their website:
Lynn Canyon Park officially opened to the public in 1912 and has been a popular destination among tourists and local residents ever since. Lynn Canyon Park is a great location for a family picnic, a leisurely hike, or a refreshing swim in one of the many popular swimming holes.
Lynn Canyon Park has grown from 12 acres in its early years to 617 acres today. Lynn Canyon Park contains second growth forest with most of the trees aged approximately 80 to 100 years old.
Lynn Canyon Park features a suspension bridge that sways 50 meters above the canyon. It was built privately in 1912 when the park opened. Lynn Canyon also offers a selection of walking and hiking trails that connect to other parks in the region such as Lynn Headwaters, Rice Lake, and Inter River Park.
We had our seasonal turkey dinner on Christmas eve which left Christmas Day free for venturing out in our brisk cool air to snap a few photos of the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Imagine my surprise when I noticed this street sign as we were nearing Lynn Canyon Park
(We have our own Duval)
There was a gate blocking access to vehicle traffic and we had to scramble for the limited number of parking spots in the residential area. Many others had the same idea to come here to enjoy the solitude of nature's beauty .
After a short walk we round the corner to see the concession stand, Closed for the day.
There are no washroom facilites today and no where to purchase a hot beverage to gain relief from the cold .
Lynn Canyon is a slot canyon/gorge with hiking trails and waterfalls within the park boundaries and access to the other side is via a Cable Suspension Bridge
There are stepped walkways made of heavy timber and railway ties that make your journey easier. There are signs everywhere warning you to stay within "safe" areas of the trails as there have been many fatalities over the years from persons stepping "out of bounds" and not heeding the signs
It is a heavily forested area with great beauty and a place to gather your thoughts and just reflect on life in the absence of stress.
This is what you will notice when you cross to the other side
There are a network of trails that will take you down into the canyon to the banks of Lynn Creek
There was a mist/fog in the air and I liked the way the light streamed through the trees.
Today the surface of the Suspension Bridge was very slippery due to frost. Come with me as I walk over to the other side and back
