While the better known Capilano Suspension Bridge charges between $35 and $47 (2018 rates), Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge is entirely free for both the bridge walk and the surrounding trails. It offers a very similar West Coast rain forest experience without the crowds and traffic throughout the 617-acre park. Here is a link to a virtual tour: https://lynncanyon.ca/tour/suspension-bridge/

Want to stay close to the guest cottage? You can visit on foot Fisherman's Trail along the Seymour River to the new suspension bridge or strolll inside the bird sanctuary at 300-acre Maplewood Flats conservation area, once home to famed novelist Malcolm Lowry for a few winters. Want to do some shopping? It's just a 15-minute drive to the 300-store Park Royal shopping centre in West Van. Hike to Quarry Rock. A fantastic aerial view of Deep Cove and Indian Arm await you after a 45-minute hike along easy-rated trails through West Coast forest.
