Most easily accessed by either taking Flax Gully track from the bottom of Jacks Pass Road or by riding all the way up Jacks Pass road to the water tanks and taking the track across almost to the bottom of Conical Hill. Yankee Zephyr has a little climb around a gully and then a series of fast downhill switchbacks. Links up with Swamp and Swoop to take you back close to town.

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
