** With the opening of the new Pacific Highway there are changes to access Jacks Ridge.**
Do not try to access Jacks Ridge Road from the old Pacific Highway. Although a road is depicted on maps, it is overgrown with lantana and usually impassable due to soft ground.
Instead, coming from the north take the exit off the new highway to 'Macksville'. Turn right at the exit round-about on to 'Old Coast Road' once over the bridge take the left turn on to the 'Old Coast Road' going straight ahead will have you back on the highway!. Take the first right off 'Old Coast Road' in to 'Mattick Road', over the bridge, turn left. At the end of the the road (where it is truncated by the new highway) turn right into Jacks Ridge Road. Drive 500 metres to the trail head, where there is plenty of parking, a picnic shelter and a signboard with trail map.
Driving from the south, you will have to travel through Macksville, so take the Macksville exit off the highway and proceed through Macksville on the old highway, after driving under the new highway over-bridge on the way to Nambucca, take the next turn on the left on to 'Old Coast Road'. At the round-about turn left, then over the bridge turn left on to 'Old Coast Road'. turn right onto 'Mattick Rd', once across the bridge, turn left. Proceed as for the instructions for driving from the north
