Are dogs allowed in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park?
Yes! Lynn Headwaters Regional Park is dog-friendly. Dogs are allowed on-leash on all of the trails and there are several trails which are off-leash.
The following trails at the park are off-leash:
- 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 two 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 Metrovancouver.org 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.
