Long Plain rd is locked in the winter months, the Brindabella Valley is private property and you detour to the west via Broken Cart trail which takes you out onto a forest rd which you then follow back towards Cotter Dam.
I don't recognise any of the road names from your GPS except Long Plain Rd
The Broken Cart section can be very muddy if there is any rain and you wouldn't want to be towing too much bigger than a camper trailer.

Hi Eric, after you are on the Long Plain 2WD road continue NE. You will pass the right turn to Cooleman Caves and continue down Peppercorn Hill zig zagging under the powerlines. Turn left into Boundary Rd at a sign which clearly says that there's a locked gate if you went straight ahead towards the Brindabella property which was the route in the 70's back to Canberra but not the way to Wee Jasper. Proceed along Boundary then Bramina then Barnetts Rd which brings you to the main Canberra to Tumut link called the Brindabella Rd. Funny how they all start with a B!! Turn right onto the Brindabella Rd and drive 500m east then turn left and you are on Nottingham Rd which takes you to Wee Jasper. Much of the trip is through thick forest which gets a bit tedious. We did it towing a Jayco Swan with no problems in the dry. My LPI map shows all those B roads criss crossing so there are alternate routes... W

Yep that sounds right,

travelling north up Long Plain Rd
0km (reset tripmeter) turn left onto Broken Cart Track
7km Continue Straight on Broken Cart at the intersection of feints range track
2km Continue Straight on broken cart at the boundary road cross road
2km continue straight at intersection on right possible cooleman crk fire trail
3km to dubbo flat - good area for lunch!
3km turn right onto Barnetts Road (hilly country now over but if wet this road can hold a lot of water...)
3.5km at the powerlines you can either proceed north on Barnetts rd (bit of a zig zag but stay on Barnetts rd for 12km) to meet with the Brindabella rd or follow the power lines track down (steep & slippery if wet), At the bottom turn left (north again) to meet up with the Brindabella road.

Distances are between points and are approximate...:)

Cheers nice piece of country there!

PS the road to Wee Jasper is 9km west (left) from Barnetts or about 20km west if you went down the powerlines road.

Hi Eric,

I am in Philadelphia staying with my son and his family and saw your post. Funny where and when you hear of people you know.
How are things with you? Last time I saw you you were in the Vitara. What have you got now? Do you do much 4WDing?
