Route Overview

Jacob’s Ladder in Tasmania goes right up to Ben Lomond Mountain. Sharply winding and steep and narrow zig-zag road climbs up to Ben Lomond Mountain at an elevation of 5,150 ft above sea level.

Ben Lomond National Park is a large plateau atop precipitous cliffs that dominate the plains of rural north-eastern Tasmania. It is a famous tourist spot which has a nice lookout with an excellent view to Jacobs Ladder and Ben Lomond National Park.

The riders dare take the risk along this muddy and dusty loose gravel road only if they have ever eperienced such a road before.

The road is unsealed and the climb up to the Jacob’s Ladder to the plateau is steep. It’s one of the famous hairpinned roads in Australia dominating the landscape on either side.

The weather is harsh and is highly unpredictable. Winters expereince heavy snow, so its better to carry all equipments that will allow you to overcome the dodgy weather.
