Swim at the Lynn Canyon Swimming Hole

Canada Inter River Park

Added by John Entwistle

A short hike to an amazing "secret" swimming hole in Lynn Creek. Deep enough water to jump in, and very refreshing on a warm day!  

From the last field at inter city park, continue walking down the road to the Lynn Canyon trail. Follow the trail up the wooden boardwalks and to the first open area on the trail. When you can see the creek to your left, head down to the creek. 

To get to this particular swimming hole, you will have to walk up the creek on the right side about 100 metres, then cross and continue walking up ~100 metres. 

Find a nice spot on a rock, and set up for the afternoon! 

There is lots of space along the river, so make sure to not crowd your neighbours! And as always... Pack out your garbage!

How to Get There

Awesome spot to spend the day

A great place to head to in the summer to cool off! The water is always clear and refreshing, but is definitely cold so bring a towel to dry off afterwards.

Crescent beach is a great place to end your day, by taking some sunset pictures. It often lights up the sky and really pops with colour.

Hike the Butze Rapids Loop Trail

Canada / Butze Rapids Trailhead

The parking lot for the trail is just outside of Prince Rupert and right off of Highway 16W. This hike is an easy hike, with some hills, through a beautiful coastal rainforest.
