  • A very easy trail takes about 5 hours from parking lot to the fall for 14 km round trip.
  • An uncrowded, local gem through temperate rainforest that ends at the picturesque, Norvan Falls. The trail is well marked and the grades are moderate. Bring proper footwear as there are lots of opportunities to roll an ankle. The return distance from the parking lot to the falls is about 16 km. Allow about four hours which will give you lots of time at the falls.
  • The trail to the falls is great for trail running which you'll see a good number of people doing. It's a fairly easy, but long wall to the falls, so have plenty of hydration and snacks. When you reach the falls, don't expect a grand, spectacular waterfall because it isn't. It's approximately 10-20 meters high. This place is accessible by car and transit. Dogs are allowed in the park, but require a leash. Also, clean up after your own dog waste. There are garbage bins near the trailhead.
  • A worthy 4 hour hike (round-trip). Not a huge amount of elevation gain. The trail is all loose rocks and roots, and it's different from all the other trails around Lynn Canyon. No cellular connection right at the beginning so be prepared.
  • A feature-light hike to falls except for the old corduroy road. Falls are a nice spot for lunch though

Where to stay in North Vancouver

Often overshadowed by its larger and more famous southern neighbor, North Vancouver offers relatively little by way of accommodations. Your best bet is to look towards the shore, along Esplanade Avenue and the streets directly behind, where you'll find a few hotels offering views over the pier. Stay west of the center, along Capilano Road, for easy access to the Capilano River and surrounding parks. You can also consider staying in Vancouver proper and take public transport across the harbor.
