Finding a walk that is accessible in winter is tricky. Mt Jack, at the back of Dederang fits the bill nicely. Whilst it is all on 4WD track, these tracks are rarely used so we won’t be dodging vehicles all day. The walk is a loop that is accessed via private property and by crossing a number of creeks (depth of water is dependant on weather). On a clear day whilst climbing steeply  (700m over 4km) up Billy Hicks Track you can see the main range. This climb will take us to the Mt Jack Track and from here its a bit up, a bit down, and a bit around till we get to the unassuming summit of Mt Jack. Following the North House Creek Track we will descend back to the flatter farmland and the cars. All up about 17km.
