  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Rewarding view and the end. Well maintained trail with easy difficulty.
  • Great hike without a huge amount of elevation gain. Perfect if there is still lots of snow in upper elevations. It can be crowded at the falls, so we chose to have a more peaceful lunch by the suspension bridge.
