Join the Ancient Forest Alliance's TJ Watt and Hannah Carpendale this SATURDAY, MAY 26TH for an old-growth hike to the 12-foot wide Lynn Creek Cedar and a grove of ancient redcedars by the Kennedy Falls!

Enjoy the great hike in the woods while learning about the ecology and politics of old-growth forests, the AFA's campaign to protect them, and how YOU can help!

When: Meet at 9:45am at the intersection of Mountain Highway and Coleman St. in North Vancouver.   (See directions further down).

Hike duration: The hike will be approx. 10-12km in total and about 5 hours of hiking.  We expect to arrive back at our starting point between 4 and 5pm.

Hike Difficulty/Safety: This hike will be of moderate difficulty.  Most of the trail is flat along the side of a slope but hikers should be comfortable with uneven ground, crossing streams with some slippery rocks and going up and down small steep sections of trail. There is a slight chance of your feet getting wet as well if the creek levels are up so bring an extra pair of socks just in case! 
*All participants will be required to sign a waiver form*

Please bring: Warm clothes, rain-gear (it is Vancouver after all!), hiking boots, medical requirements, lunch & snacks, water, and a camera if you'd like! College Grants

Directions:

  • By bus: This hike is an easy transit ride from Vancouver.  The #210 Upper Lynn Valley bus runs east from downtown (Burrard station), over the Second Narrows bridge, and stops at Phibbs Exchange before continuing up Mountain Highway towards Lynn Valley.  Get off at Coleman St.
  • Car: If you are coming from the Second Narrows Bridge, take Exit 21 and follow Mountain Highway north towards Fromme Mt/Lynn Valley.  If you are coming from Lion’s Gate Bridge, take Marine Drive east, Capilano Rd north to Upper Levels/Hwy 1 east, exit onto Lynn Valley Rd, then turn left/north onto Mountain Highway and follow it up towards Fromme Mt/Lynn Valley.  Note: Parking is not allowed by non-residents north of Coleman St, and only for 2 hour intervals along Coleman, so best to park south of Coleman!

RSVP: Please contact Hannah (hannah@ancientforestalliance.org) to reply if you’re planning to come or if you have any questions.  For any questions on the morning of the hike, please contact 1-604-250-4116.

Hope to see you there!

TJ Watt, Hannah Carpendale,
Ancient Forest Alliance.
