Willow Lane is the easiest track in the Sharland Valley Trail System. Staring roughly 1.2km up Sharland road, drop down the short hill and look for a turn to the right. This is the entrance to the track. Willow Lane follows the river down, starting with a rocky section, then into a more flowy bush section.
