Detailed description

Full day loop walk from Mitchells Road, Crabtree.

White Timber Mountain is located in the hills behind Lucaston. A small part of this walk follows a part of the "Tasmanian Trail" so don't be surprised to see 4WDs in your travels. Tasmap: Longley 1:25000.

A rather long day walk. A longer alternative to end the walk can be to take Bakers Creek Trail down to Bakers Creek Road and eventually into Lucaston (literally hundreds of wallabies to be seen at the higher end of Bakers Creek Road near dusk).

WARNING: If taking the Bakers Creek Trail alternative (I've not plotted this on the map) you will need a lift back to your car!

WARNING++: If taking the Bakers Creek Trail alternative (I've not plotted this on the map) expect to spend the last 3 hours walking down a very steep decline, and, if you are unlucky enough (like me) you could end up with an ITBS (or ITBFS) injury (ouch!) which will take, at the least, a month to get over!

Allow 9 - 10 hours to complete.
