Park Governance: Regional (Provincial or State)

Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, in North Vancouver, BC, has a beautiful off-leash trail running parallel to Lynn Creek. It's mostly flat with easy terrain and there are several locations where your dog can venture into the cold water for a swim.

The off-leash trail starts on the lower Lynn Loop Trail, then connects to the Cedar Mills Trail and ends north of the Third Debris Chute, on the Headwaters Trail. We have rated the 3rd leg intermediate (past the Third Debris Chute) because the terrain and elevation are a little more challenging.

Do pay attention to signage in the park so that you don't inadvertently wander onto an on-leash trail - the trails are well marked along the way.

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.
