An action-packed day exploring the forest of Lynn Canyon Park and the breathtaking valley of Pitt Meadows.
We start the day with a leisurely hike through Lynn Canyon Park. Crossing the 50m high suspension bridge allows a panoramic view over the canyon, forest and raging waters below. Leaving the bridge, we enter into the 1000-year-old forest. Here we learn some interesting facts about the local flora & fauna and the First Nation’s People who lived in these areas for thousands of years. The vegetation mostly consists of conifers and ferns with scattered pockets of maple and alder. Enjoy the crisp, clean air and vivid greens of the Pacific Northwest Temperate Rainforest and you’ll begin to feel the tranquility of this magic place! We stroll along the boardwalk and under the canopy of the trees before we reach Lynn Creek and the crystal-clear waters of Thirty foot Pool. Following the pools, we climb the stairs to the upper trail network and join the Baden Powell Trail to Twin Falls Bridge where we cross the river and make our way back up towards the car park where we began.
Following the hike, we return to the bus and take the short 30-minute drive to Pitt Meadows where we will enjoy a fresh and healthy picnic by the Alouette River. After our meal, we will begin our bicycle ride on the Trans Canada Trail, along the beautiful dikes and riverbank.
Pitt Meadows is located in the lower Fraser valley, 50 km from downtown Vancouver and surrounded by the glorious mountains of Golden Ears and Pinecone Burke Provincial parks. The bike trails that we ride along are 100% flat, smooth riding and vehicle free! The Trans Canada Trail at Pitt Meadows is a hidden gem, close to the city but free from the masses of people. We are delighted to be the sole tour operator with access to the stunning Trans Canada Trail located at Pitt Meadows, BC. One can appreciate the colorful surrounding farmland, fauna and blooming meadows as we pedal along the majestic trail. Following our cycle, we will relax and enjoy refreshments while hopefully enjoying in the warm summer sun for a while.
