Style: Flow

Continuing downriver from Rangers Station there are forests and open woodlands with smooth descents and short uphill bursts with rollers to keep the flow going.

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.

35km To Jindabyne

Level: Intermediate
Distance: 35km one way
Style: Flow

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. Note, there are no exit points in this section of the trail.

This 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.

Looking to ride just one way?

You can organise for a local shuttle service to pick you up and drive you back to Thredbo via Snowy Mountains Shuttles or Snowlink.
