Description:

This is my favorite trail running route. Starting from End of the Line General Store.

Email already sent to people who are interested before Friday 13th 4:40 pm. If you want to participate, just meet up at Lynn Headwater Park Trailhead at 11 am/email me directly. 

The access road is currently closed. We cannot park at the trail entrance anymore because the access road leading to it is sort of washed out and Metro Vancouver is fixing it. I think the best place to meet is outside End of the Line General store. in North Van around noon 14th October (Saturday).There are three options, 8km, 12km, and 17.5km. Lynn loop is 8km, Debris Chute Junction is 12km and Norvan Falls is 17.5km.

It usually takes me a little less than 2 hours to complete 17.5km.The trail is a little technical, rocks, roots, puddles, stream crossing are common. There is a little bit of an incline at the beginning, you gain around 150meter in elevation, and get more technical, with ups and downs. 2nd half of the run is less technical because the trail is wider, smoother. 

This place is great because it is accessible by transit.
