Ascent Trip ReportThis is on the trail to Lyn Lowry. With 0ft prominence you'll want to check that you're there by GPS. Decent views along the path. The trail is still well marked at this point but is narrow. Note: there are lots of blackberries. It gets worse on the far side of this peak. Not as many thorns as the variety as I'm used to in Maine, but I still look like it was death by a thousand papercuts.
