Where you'll be

Rice Lake is a tranquil lake near Lynn Headwaters Provincial Park in North Vancouver, surrounded by lush rainforest. Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, and Hemlock trees dominate the forest canopy, with views of the Coast Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. It's easily accessed by public bus. And there's plenty of free parking. The 2-km trail is well-maintained, with little change in elevation.
