Lynn Valley started as a logging road to the mill built in 1911. Later in the 1950s, it was significantly developed after the Second Narrows Bridge was completed, making automobile access into Vancouver reliable. The community was built on the west side of the steep Lynn Valley, with Mountain Highway as the north-south route to the Second Narrows Bridge, and Lynn Valley Road being the diagonal road into the core of North Vancouver.
Central Lynn is just north of Lynn Valley Centre. Upper Lynn is the neighbourhood around where Mountain Highway meets Dempsey Rd, just below the treeline.
