Thredbo Valley Track
Open November to May conditions permitting. Current trail status can be found here.
This impressive shared-use trail takes riders down the picturesque Thredbo Valley and includes some amazing suspension bridges. Meandering along the banks of the famous Thredbo River, riders can maintain flow undulating through open grasslands and thick eucalyptus forests.
The section to the third bridge (5km return) or Rangers Station (12km return) is perfect for the beginners with some climbing involved on the return trip. Continuing downriver there are forests and open woodlands with smooth descents and short uphill bursts with rollers to keep the flow going. Riders can continue on to Thredbo Diggings (14.5km one way) or head onto to Lake Crackenback Resort (20km one way).
The newly opened lower Thredbo Valley Track extension for the more experienced rider adds 15km to the trail from Lake Crackenback to Gaden Trout Hatchery. This section features stepper sections of trail both climbing & descending and some more technical rock sections to navigate. Riders can also extend further by joining the Hatchery Bay trail which continues onto Jindabyne.

Running parallel with the run of the Thredbo River, you continue onto Thredbo Diggings campsites where riders can call it a day or make you way to the well-maintained trails of Lake Crackenback Resort.
Thredbo Valley Track - One way to Gaden Trout Hatchery
Distance: 35km one way
After following the Thredbo Valley Track along to Crackenback, this lower extension is a thrilling new option for adventure riders keen to test their legs on a more challenging, and remote section of this iconic track. The first 3km’s beyond Crackenback is an easy to moderate ride before getting more technical and the landscape more remote. Packed with challenges including tight switchbacks, high berms, rocky surfaces, and steep gradients it’s a great trail for intermediate and advanced riders. Note that there are no exit points beyond Crackenback until Gaden Trout Hatchery.
