Ragged Jack

Ragged Jack is the baby brother to Ben Lomond (and the Jacob’s ladder route), so we created a ride dedicated to good ole Jack. While he might be a little smaller in stature, he’s a cute little bugger. 

This ride starts about 30 min outside of Launceston. You get a relaxed warm up with peak-a-boo views of Ben Lomond and Ragged Jack along along a gravel road that is undulating with an upward trend. After a short, but really fun downhill, you cross the North Esk river and back onto C401 and then within a few miles / kilometers you reach the Ben Lomond road. After climbing a short bit, you split off right onto Ragged Jack road. Read More
