Hike up Lynn Peak on Saturday, October 29th (8:30am-5pm). Rating C3

If you like the Grouse Grind, you'll love the Lynn Peak hike! Join former Mokuyokai Hike Captain, Kenny, for a hike to the top of Lynn Peak on the North Shore. While the hike is steep, the views of Vancouver are very rewarding!
Please note that this is a steep hike, on par with the Grouse Grind (and longer), so only prepared and fit hikers should come. Thank-you, Kenny, for leading this hike.
