8.7 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Lynn Headwaters Park - Search Nearby - Added by Ian Tyley

We started pretty early to beat the crowd. No one in the car park so we had it to ourselves. In the morning the breeze just feels so fresh. Its the best time to hike.Good chat and good company and we made it to the Falls in just over 2 hrs. The waterfall itself is quiet big and releases a gust of air every now and then that is refreshing. At the top of the falls is a beautiful green color swimming hole, but I would say be careful because it is a long way down.I would suggest this hike to anyone. ;)

From the parking lot, walk across the Lynn Creek Bridge. Head to your left and continue walking along the creek as it hugs the river.

The first 1.7km is along a wide gravel road which is part of the lower Lynn Loop Trail. Continue past a junction, the trail becomes narrower and you pass over several small streams, pools of mud, and around small groves of trees. This section of the trail is known as the Cedars Mill Trail.After the first 4km, the trail opens up into a clearing known as a debris chute. Walk to the left towards the river and follow over the rocks as Goat Mountain towers overhead. From this point, head up the rocky debris towards the sign posts. Turn left and continue your hike by entering the forest along the Headwaters Trail.You can't miss the powerful sound of the waterfall and the beauty that surrounds it.
