Guthega River Snowshoe is a 3.3km, grade 4 Return hike located in Kosciuszko National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 30 mins to complete.


This pleasant snowshoe walk starts from the car park at Guthega. You will wander down the gently hill following a wide trail then cross Guthega Dam wall. There are great views over the pondage as you continue along the snow covered trail past Guthega Shaft. The flat trail soon ends and the more challenging walking starts as you make your way along the side of Guthega River valley gently leading down to the edge of the river. A little upstream is a small timber bridge. Do not walk on or anywhere near the ice on the pondage – the water level often changes and the ice will not hold your weight.
