If you are looking for a walk close to home without the bother of driving and finding parking, try the convenient, close to home, Lynn Valley LINK.
Phase 1 of the Lynn Valley LINK, a project initiated by the LVCA, opened in September 2017 using existing trails and streets to circumnavigate the community of Lynn Valley.
Phase 2 of the Lynn Valley LINK was completed in 2019. You might have already noticed the LV LINK logos with arrows that show the routes through Lynn Valley that connect with the perimeter sections of the LV LINK.
The final map showing the connecting LV LINK routes through Lynn Valley is now available on the LVCA website to download as a PDF. (see link at the bottom of this post)
The LV LINK kiosk installed at Pioneer Park in the heart of Lynn Valley at the corner of Mountain Highway and Lynn Valley Road features the map and is accessible to all at this location. Each kiosk along the LV LINK showcases the LV LINK Route Map and some interesting facts related to the history of Lynn Valley.
At this time one (1) section of the LV LINK is closed. The section that is closed is a portion of the Hastings Creek Trail from 27th Street to where the trail exits south on Hoskins Road. This section has been closed due to soil instability and landslides that threaten the trail. A geotechnical study will take place in 2021 so that safety concerns can be addressed before the trail can be re-opened.
As most will know, the Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge was closed because of Covid-19 but now is open to be able to access the other side.
Consult the LV LINK map to choose an alternate route to overcome these and any other closures that may occur. Enjoy your walk!
