The Dog Stream Track starts off at a very easy gradient beside Dog Stream. Once you get onto the Jolliffe Saddle Track, the gradient becomes much steeper and becomes a challenging climb up to the saddle before a sometimes technical decent back down towards Pawsons Rd.

DOG STREAM TRACK (~15 - 20 MINUTES)

Go in off Jolllies Pass Road past the Department of Conservation and follow the road up past the Camp Track sign to the start of the Dog Stream Track. An easy ride following the stream through brush and bush before the turn off onto Jolliffe Saddle Track.

JOLLIFFE SADDLE TRACK (~20 - 30 MINUTES)

As soon as you turn onto the Jolliffe Saddle track the gradient becomes a lot steeper. There is quite a climb through the forest up to the saddle, where there are great views of Hanmer and the surrounds. The decent is a mix of nice flowing track with some technical sections as well. There is another small climb before getting onto the Red Rock Track which takes you back down to Pawsons Road.
