Best used as a fairly gentle climb from Town- just as you hit the shingle up Jacks Pass Road to take you up in behind Conical Hill. From there you can get access to a variety of tracks. Head up Conical HIll and down Eagles nest. Turn down Swamp and/or Swoop and back to town. Head left and up a short steep section to get access to downhill switchback heaven on Yankee Zephyr. Can be ridden down from the end of the Tank Track to near the bottom of Jacks Pass Road.

With respect to the Hanmer MTB Club who's only source of income is Sales of their fantastic Trail Maps. Please purchase a map from the Bike Shop in Hanmer when you visit to support this worthy cause.
