Swim at the Lynn Canyon Swimming Hole

Inter River Park

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!

The Best!

I have been coming here for over 30 years. It's always the best. From twin falls in the south, to cliff jumping below suspension bridge, to the beautiful swimming pools at 30 foot. Bask and bake on the rocks at 30 foot pool, then go for a little jump in.

Beautiful Summer Spot

This River is beautiful, perfect on scorching hot days because it's extremely cold.. surrounded by so much beautiful forest and waterfalls.. Too many people though so if you like your solitude like me, it's not the best but worth experiencing for sure! But be safe as the falls have claimed lives..

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.
