Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from a friend's house on Greenspire Drive, first climbing over the summit of Mt Lyn Lowry, then descending the unofficial trail on the north face of Lyn Lowry to the old logging road that leads through the old singing grounds. Followed the logging road to the base of Plott Balsam, where an obvious trail leads through the undergrowth to the summit. Took another logging road back down the Winchester Creek drainage to the shoulder of Mt Lyn Lowry to meet back up with Spruce Patch Rd, then back to Greenspire Dr.
