Front country - easily accessible
Undulating, small hills only
Starting at the confluence of the two loops, head back down Wet Gully Rd towards when your car is parked. Take a right on the next road intersection and follow this along as it wind around and down past an empty dam. At the next intersection, take a right on to Coalpit Dam Rd and head along until you reach Coal Pit dam. Head through the carpark and wind your way around the dam in a clockwise fashion. Cross the wee bridge, keep heading around and the head left as you leave the dam. Head through the carpark and follow the signage. A few more turns and you head up a wee hill and reach the water race. Follow the track that winds alongside this (briefly dropping down a small gully then back up again to meet the race again) past Hoffmans Dam and all the way along, back to a small downhill to wet Gully Road. Take a small left and through the opening across the road and head up the hill to rejoin the water race. Follow this along again, past the Swimming Dam on the outskirts of Naseby (public toilets just past here on the right, but may be closed in winter). You'll cross another access road just after this, carry on following the water race for another 300m or so, then its over a small bridge on your left and following the track through the forest. It'll spit you out onto the road once again, take a right and follow this up and around (taking a right at the Y-intersection) and head left at the top of the hill and back down towards where you started.
