Lucy's Track. Dooley's Track. They join up as a sweet little loop trail that deserve a heck of a lot of love and hopefully not too many visitors.
Well marked and maintained thanks to local volunteers, this watercourse ramble winds around a steep sided section of the picturesque Wilmot River in Central Tasmania.
Travelling from Launceston, takes around 1 hour, 20 minutes.
Head West on the Bass Highway and choose a turn off to Sheffield. Roll through the pretty town centre and chug on through on the B14 for 13km, then left onto Lower Barrington Road ( C144) for a kilometre until the C144 hangs a left and becomes Lake Paloona Road and spins around for 6.5km until a left onto Wilmot Road (C132) for 3.5km and your looking for a parking spot on the twisty hill after the bridge.
Or plug in the following numbers 4RC8P6FC+GW into Google maps. That'll do it.
There's a yellow metal sign nailed to a tree to indicate the parking area.
Cross the road, hop the wire fence guard, go left and look for the car tyre staircase heading down to the river.

To be honest anything I write here that isn't hyperbolic nature inspired prose is drawn directly from the late Bill Shepherd's still active Wilmot River Walks website and the very useful 'Kentish Walks' Facebook group page that includes the informative 2 page PDF download of the circuit including map and clockwise walking directions. Which is all you need, really.
