Track starts from the top of Clarence Valley Road at Jacks Pass carpark.
Tramp up alpine tussock & some steep barren loose shingle before joining the Mt Isobel track then beyond to the summit with breath-taking views over the Hanmer Basin & out beyond towards Rainbow & Molesworth stations & coastline.
Some steep spots on track, so not for novices.
Be careful as loose shingle can trip you up.
How to get there:
From Hanmer Springs travel north up Clarence Valley Road (unsealed) for 4 km until you reach the small carpark at the top of Jacks Pass which dissects both Mt Isobel & Mt Dumblane. (Total is 20 minutes’ drive from the thermal pools).
Plan your trip, tell someone your plans.
Be aware of the weather (if you cannot see the summit before starting out, do not attempt).
Take sufficient supplies, know your limits.
Bring along water & snack food for summit rest before heading back.
Naturally, you can ask Amy or Shane at Hanmer Apartments when you stay with us!
