Park Governance: Regional (Provincial or State)

Are dogs allowed in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park?

Yes!  Dogs are allowed on-leash on all of the trails in Lynn Headwaters park and there are several trails that are leash-optional for your dog to enjoy as well.

The following trails at the park are leash-optional:

  • Lower Lynn Loop
  • Cedars Mill
  • the portion of Headwaters Trail north of the Third Debris Chute
  • the connector trail between Lynn Headwaters Regional Park and the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve

The trail heads throughout the park are very well marked. So if you take a look before venturing on to a new trail you can see if it is "leash-optional" or "leash-required".

There is a very small parking lot right at the entrance to the park, but it is very difficult to get a one of those coveted spots. There are also 2 overflow parking lots a short walk down the road, but those, as well as the available street parking, also fill up very quickly. If you are planning to visit the park, especially on a sunny day, get an early start.

Be sure to check out the official website at for the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park off-leash map, backcountry closures, updates, park hours, accessibility, and more. The trails extend far into the backcountry, beyond the off-leash trails, where the terrain, elevation and conditions can be extreme - no one should go into these areas without being informed and prepared.
