Cedars Mill Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The upper Lynn Creek Valley, once watershed, was opened to the public in 1985. Today, hiking trails and back country routes enable the experienced hiker to explore the slopes and peaks of this rugged mountain region. From a level trail along the valley bottom, the less ambitious walker can share the wilderness experience with far less effort.
Always within sound of fast-flowing Lynn Creek, the Cedars Mill Trail offers forest, beach and mountain views as well as reminders of former mining and logging days. Choose your season carefully—snow and ice can linger in Lynn Valley and even this low-elevation trail can be treacherous, especially in thawing conditions and periods of heavy rainfall. Also, the park provides extensive habitat for black bears, and although these animals are rarely encountered by the casual walker, to talk or whistle as you go along will lessen the chance of an unlooked-for meeting. Highlights: River and forest; mountain views, mill site relics; devil’s club, wildflowers; ravens. Terrain: Mostly flat. Forest trail with one stony section and a few steps."
