Thredbo Valley track is a 16.6km, grade 3 One Way hike located in the Kosciuszko National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 6hrs to complete.

Summary

Kosciuszko National Park is a mecca for mountain bikers, and Thredbo Valley track is one of its most popular (and easiest) adventures on two wheels.
Soak in the views of the Ramshead Range, and enjoy the fresh mountain air as you travel through tall mountain gum forest, snow gum woodland, and open grasslands. The trail meanders along the pretty Thredbo River valley and even crosses several photogenic suspension bridges. Keep an eye out for 400 year-old mountain plum pines and, in spring, flowering hovea with its purple ‘hearts’.
If you prefer to tackle just a section of the track, there are access points at Thredbo Diggings campground or Ngarigo campground. Why not stay overnight, or stop here for a picnic and try your luck fishing in the Thredbo River. Bullocks Hut is a picturesque detour at the end of the track.
This track is mostly smooth riding or walking with some short climbs and descents, making it a great day out for casual cruisers and pros alike. For more mountain biking options visit the Thredbo website.
