Exploring The Lynn Headwaters Regional Park and Rice Lake

Rice Lake in North Vancouver

This last weekend we went hiking as a family again and spent some time enjoying the calm and beautiful Rice Lake, located on the edge of the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park in North Vancouver. The lake is full of life and natural beauty, including some adorable ducklings we had the chance to spot.

The trail circles around the lake and features amazingly tall trees and moss-covered forest rocks and it has some pretty nice viewpoints with benches where you can sit and relax and enjoy the view and sounds. A great place for bird watchers and also great for fishing.

Such a gorgeous place! You can see some photos from our visit and a short video clip below.

    Beautiful pictures! Looks like a wonderful day out… I used take the boys out all the time when they were super-little and I found that their love for nature came automatically; they still love being outdoors as teens.

    I live in Ontario and we have the most scenic and the most beautiful landscape in the world but your pictures make it clear that BC is a close second.
