One of the significant wins from the Tasmanian Forrest Agreement is the protection of this special area.
How to get there: From Tin Dragon Trail Cottages turn right onto the Tasman Highway (A3). Drive up over the hill out of Branxholm. Continue along the Tasman Highway through Derby, Moorina to Weldborough (26 Km). From Welborough you can continue on the A3 to the top of the pass where you will see a small sign indicating Lottah Road and Little Plains Lookout (6.8 km from Welborough).
You can also drive via the Mt Paris Dam Road to Weldborough (19 km, well maintained gravel road).
Drive into Lottah Road for about 1 km to the Quarry (LHS). Set your odometer to 0. Just past the quarry on the RHS is Lehners Ridge Road, which is unsigned (1.2 km from turn-off into Lottah Rd). Turn into Lehners Ridge Road. Drive mostly downhill till your odometer reading is 1.7km. There is a small pull-off area on the right. Track construction started in April, so the walk entrance is well marked, now. I guess new road signage will appear soon, too.
New contoured track makes the downhill walk easy. There's an amazing stone bridge taking you onto the old tin mine water race. After following the water race for about 200m you will head down hill again.
