Jellore Powerline Climb
About the Track
Track Description

I don't know how much there is to see and do in this area; I only had time to check out the powerline climb. There are easy chicken tracks around the sides, but the main event is a mildly steep climb consisting of loose rocks and rock steps. I rate most of this as difficult, but one section was certainly an extreme grade (steps around 1m high). There's a great view at the top.

How to get there:
Starting from the corner of Old Hume Hwy & Wombeyan Caves Rd, Mittagong, proceed up Wombeyan Caves Rd for around 800m, and turn RIGHT into Kells Creek Road. Follow this for maybe 2km, until you get to a very sharp S bend, continue through and immediately on the right is a dirt road which leads north into Jellore State Forest. Around 2.5km down this trail you'll see a track on the left which opens straight up to the powerline. That's the start.

41572 Managed the first half of the climb easily with AT's, no lockers or lift. Chicken track (graded road) from the halfway point up to the top and back down to the bottom was accessible. Mitsubishi Challenger Aug 11, 2013
39942 Great day, bit more of challenge last time. I didn't drive, was my friend Nik. Track has been modified by someone with authorisation. The trail is blocked at one point with large rocks but we still made it past. One chicken track has been blocked but you can now get up it thanks to me haha! The access road now cuts through part of the track :( Toyota Hilux May 5, 2013
37816 Looks like they got sick of people using it because they have an excavator up there and some big (4 foot +) rocks placed across the middle with no way around. Disappointing wanted to get everyone to the top without using the maintenance road Nissan Patrol Apr 25, 2013

27936 Great track. The view from the top is amazing, perfect spot for lunch. The climb itself is very challenging if you decide to go straight up the middle. Very steep with some very big step-ups. Each difficult section has very easy chicken track to the side so the climb is still suitable for most 4wds. Nissan Patrol Apr 25, 2012
