Norvan Falls Hike, Lynn Headwaters Regional Park

Hiking is a great (free!) activity in the Lower Mainland and offers the chance to soak up some of British Columbia's beautiful forests, creeks and mountains. This weekend we decided to kick off the hiking season in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park located at the end of Lynn Valley Road in North Vancouver with a 14 kilometre hike to picturesque Norvan Falls. Although there was rain and mud, it was a great adventure and we highly suggest you check it out!
