Lynn Peak is a 5.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near North Vancouver District, BC that offers scenic views and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
5-hours round trip, steep and with abundance of loose rocks, some muddy and nearly no-through spots in trail. Trail is entirely within the woods with few vista points. Vista at the top was somewhat worth it.
-Steep uphill sections. Great alternative to Grouse.
-Path was always clear.
-Maintenance spotty in parts
-End vista point and a few peekaboo views, mostly interior of forest.
This hike was not overly long not was it short. There were a few challenging spots but over pretty well rounded. If you have knee or joint issues be aware the decent is not very kind on your body. Took about 4 hrs from the parking lot to the top and back again.
Hiked up there in mid May. The trail was clear and the weather could not have been better. Nice workout on a Saturday morning. Less crowded and less commercial than Grouse Grind.
Will do it again.
Just did the Lynn Peak today it was awesome! Very challenging terrain but rewarding once you finished. Nice work out for the cardio. Will definitely do it again!
Great view from the top of the city below... Not sure what everyone's beef is. The hike up is rough but the hike down is worse... Most of the trail is loose rock material making traversing down a little bit challenging. Good trail overall, measured from parking lot to peak it's 11.5km not 9
it's a good workout, but the view is pretty lame considering the effort put in. Much better hikes out there. Try coliseum!
Excellent hike done in perfect weather. Early May 2015. Agree only one good look out but get up there alone and the rocks on top are serene and provide a great place to crash and relax for an hour. View is actually pretty good on a good day but I can imagine it being a little too distant if cloudy.
Steady climb.. Agree that for the amount of work, the reward is average. A better view from Dog Mountain in all honesty.
Good hike took about 3:30 with plenty of stops. Downside is there is only one really good view, when you get to the top. Hiked it in November and trail was still in good enough condition just a little muddy. Would recommend hiking boots or gators if hiking in fall months.
Wonderful hike took about 3hr in full, up and down.
