Dead Horse Gap and Thredbo River loop is a 10.1km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5 hrs to complete.
This loop walk starts from Dead Horse Gap and does a large circuit up to the Eagles Nest Restaurant and down the Chairlift before returning along the Thredbo River. Along the walk there are stunning views from the top of the Rams Head Range before the opportunity for lunch at Australia’s Highest Restaurant followed by an enjoyable chairlift ride down to Thredbo. There is then the tranquil snow gum forest surrounding the Thredbo River on the way back to Dead Horse Gap.
