Length: 6.8 km
Condition: Rocky, bushy, mostly dry
General Route: Runs up from the Lynn Creek Headwaters, and along the Lynn Peaks to North Needle
How to Find: The trail starts on the Lynn Loop Trail about 1km from Lynn headwaters parking lot (go right after the bridge, then left).
Trail Description: Once on the trail, the first part appears to be the remenants an old road, although it is improbably steep in places and looks more like a creek bed with large rocks, small boulders and running water in the wet season. After a few switchbacks it reaches the ridge at the first lockout towards the Seymour Valley. Then the trail becomes narrower, flatter and more pleasant in places. After a steeper section there is a view of Mt Seymour, then at above 800m you can look back towards the city past an old fir.
After a rocky step there is a view to the left across Lynn valley. About 100m further the trail splits, to the right is the official end at Lynn Lookout. To the left the trail bypasses this rocky knoll and continues to a junction with the southern Lynn Pk 980m (the peak is a minute to the left, but there is no view) Now comes the 1st drop of 65m followed by a short climb of 25m and a long flat ridge. Then the 2nd drop of 50m is followed by a climb of 75m. The 3rd drop is only 20m and the climb of 70m gets you to the top of North Lynn Pk 1015m.
