Lynn Canyon Park & Suspension Bridge

One popular attraction near Vancouver, BC is the Capilano Suspension Bridge.  It’s probably really cool, but in general I tent to avoid these kinds of tourist attractions. I  just checked the website, and the cost for an adult to cross the bridge  is currently $31.95. Yet there is another suspension bridge in the same area, that’s free!

Lynn Canyon Park is a 670 acre park that features miles of trails, and a 50 meter high suspension bridge. The bridge crosses the Lynn Canyon with pools of water below.

I visited the park on a cold January day in 2012. There were several other visitors on the bridge that day, but I was able to snag a couple of moments alone. I would imagine that this is pretty busy during the summer  months. I’d love to go back to visit the area during the summer to do some hiking.
