    Forget Capilano Suspension Bridge

    Lynn Valley Canyon Suspension Bridge

    When you think about going to see the Capilano Suspension Bridge ..DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY for this touristic place.

    Go to Lynn Valley Canyon, there is a suspension bridge too.OK, only 30m wide instead of 70m, but firstly it's for free (compared to nearly 14 CAD at Capilano S.B.) and the area there is much more beautiful. Secondly the hike/trails you can do are amazing. For example you can go to the lake or to the waterfall and you are in a real rainforest too.

    And you won't see so many tourists there.
    Just do it!
    ;-)

    Hiking at Lynn Canyon Park...

    Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

    In my (not totally unbiased opinion) Lynn Canyon Park is the jewel of North Vancouver's park system. It also features the less travelled of North Vancouver's canyon suspension bridges. Yes, Capilano's is more famous, but Lynn Canyon's is equally spectacular and FREE. Hiking trails go for miles in all directions.
    Be sure to visit the Ecology Centre near the park entrance.

    The OTHER Suspension bridge

    Not the bridge, but Twin Falls, just downstream

    Lynn Canyon in Lynn Valley has a suspension bridge, that is maintained by the municipalty. It is shorter than the Capilano River bridge, but it's FREE! This is not to say don't go to both. We went on two elephant treks when we were in Thailand.

    Lynn Canyon was incredible. It's a very scenic spot. I can't describe it too well with words...just go there. My only criticism with Lynn Canyon was that the suspension bridge wasn't rickety enough. It was cool, but I wanted it to be like the one in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.... Oh yeah, it's free to get in.

    Rice Lake

    From Lynn Canyon, I followed a trail which led to the Seymour Demonstration Forest. I came across the incredibly tranquil Rice Lake. There was hardly anyone out there: a fisherman and a few joggers running the path which surrounds the lake. The lake was perfect.

    Cross the highest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world

    The Lynn Valley suspension bridge sways slightly from side to side as you walk over it, holding on to the pair of two-inch think steel cables that support the planking which is all that stands between you and the roaring torrent below. Before reaching the bridge itself, you have to walk past notice boards illustrating how various people have met their deaths here over the years by being sucked under water by hidden votices, or by banging their heads against the rocks as they jumped into the nearby lake, or by being hit by falling trees, etc etc. If you can brave the crossing (which is actually pretty straightforward) you can walk through the forest on the other side down to a small pool full of crystal clear water, made bright green due to reflections of the surrounding evergreens. A fun spot to come in the summer, apparently, when people sunbathe on the rocks and swim in the cool water.

    Go to the Lynn Valley Conservation Area. They have a suspension bridge that is higher (although not as long as Capilano) and they have lots of interesting things to see on a great hiking trail....
    The area is not as tourist trappish as Capilano bridge and also there is no cost for seeing the bridge.

    We had rented scooters for the day and made it to Lynn Canyon. There is a suspension bridge, lots of trails to hike on, streams, rivers and falls. It's worth a visit ... heck it's free entry!

    After the Rice Lake walk, you back here @ Lynn Head Waters. The sound of the water breaking over the rocks is absolutely beautiful, and crystal clear, and relaxing, and freeeeezzzzing.

    Rice Lake in February.
    From Lynn Headquarters (at the end of Lynn Valley Road), takes about 15 minutes to get to the lake.

    Hiking trails the best and most scenic forest with footpaths. Can cross over the suspended bridge which is slightly shorter than the Capilano Suspension Bridge, but this is free.
