The East Lyn is a challenging grade 5 canoe trail

Canoeing

You are welcome to canoe on the East Lyn River from Watersmeet House down to Lynmouth between 1 October and 31 March, if there is enough water.

Before you visit

Read our canoeing leaflet and visit our webcam. If the water level is 'green' you are welcome to canoe. If the water level is 'red', it's too low for safe paddling.
