The track follows as closely as is practical, the route followed by Hamilton Hume and William Hovell in the spring and summer of 1824-1825.
The route traverses a variety of topography, vegetation and land use, as well as numerous points of historic interest.
This section of track provides for half day, one day & weekend walks suitable for the whole family.
Although the basic activity associated with the track is walking, there are opportunities for a range of resource based recreational pursuits including
swimming, camping, nature study, fishing, photography, wildlife observation and historical appreciation.
The track starts at Cooma Cottage Yass and the route goes via Black Range Road to Burrinjuck, then by boat (by arrangement with Burrinjuck Lake Cruises) to Wee Jasper. Wee Jasper track head - walkers may join the track 60 kilometres south of Yass at Wee Jasper.
Cars: may be left at Yass Tourist Centre or Wee Jasper Track Head.
