Length: 7.5 km
Condition: Good trail to Norvan Falls, then rough, many roots, some difficult stream crossings, steep boulder and scree slopes. Higher elevation sections are usually snow covered until June or early July.
General Route: Runs up the east side of Lynn Creek for 6.5 km, to the footbridge over Norvan Creek.
How to Find: From Highway 1, take exit 19 onto Lynn Valley Road, and drive to the end of it. It runs northward up the west side of Lynn Creek. Just after you pass Dempsey Road, you go thru the park gates, and can keep driving for 1.5 km, and will finally reach the parking lot. On maps, the parking lot is just before you would cross Lynn Creek. This is the trailhead.
Trail Description: From the parking lot, walk the short distance, and you'll cross the dam to the east side of Lynn Creek. Turn left and first follow the Lynn Loop Trail (for 2 km) and then the Cedars Mill Trail (another 2 km) upstream on the east side. At the "Third Debris Chute" the trail joins up with the Headwaters Trail. There is some confusion of trail names in various guidebooks, but one way or the other, you'll easily be able to follow a trail upstream all the way to the trail bridge over Norvan Creek. Just before the bridge is the Norvan Creek trail to the right. A short distance beyond Norvan Creek is the junction with the Lynn Creek and Haynes Valley Trails. From here, you can go two ways: (1) Continue up to Lynn Lake and (2) Go up Hanes Creek to Crown Pass. The junction is labeled on the park map as the Hanes Valley Junction.
