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.

This is a well-traveled hike, so if you stay on the path, you'll likely need only a good pair of boots.

Snowshoe Mount Tyrwhitt

Canada / Mount Tyrwhitt Parking

Describing snowshoeing trails is always a bit difficult, but luckily the way up Mount Tyrwhitt gets used heavily by people going to Pocaterra Cirque - first thing to remember is to take the first for.
