Take exit #19-Lynn Valley and follow the road past the shopping mall to the park entrance. The small parking lot gets full early so you may have to back track to the first parking lot. Go over the bridge and your trail starts to the left past the sign post & gate. There is a sign in book just remember complete the log on the way out so Search & Rescue are not looking for you.. The first couple of Km's are along a wide path that has the river on one side and is part of the Lynn Loop lower trail. As you keep going you'll soon go on the Cedar Mills trail. It has some old buckets, wheels, broken glass and rusted pieces of pipes along the way. You will cross a few bridges made from pieces of dead fall.
Soon you will come to a rocky-river bed that may be dry or have rushing water. Go left after the creek bed for another 3 Km's to the falls. You will cross a log bridge with a railing and walk along a trail with rocks and roots. The forest is quiet here with less people. When you arrive at the suspension bridge you are close to the falls. Across the Suspension bridge is your route to Hanes Valley...a much tougher hike and closed during the winter months.
To reach the falls go right up some stairs and just when you can see the falls go left down a semi steep trail to the beach. You might be able to get closer by going along the rocks but be careful as they are slippery. Happy & safe trails.
