The new mountain bike track in Kosciuszko National Park
The new track links Bullocks Flat to Gaden Trout Hatchery and is more remote than the upper part of the Thredbo Valley Track. It is also slightly more challenging with a number of climbs and descents, some tight switchback bends and plenty of open fast sections to enjoy.
As well as the awesome riding experience, Thredbo Valley Trail (TVT) offers brilliant alpine views as riders follow the route, with parts of the track traversing open grasslands mixed with sections that take riders through dense snow gum woodlands and past towering mountain gums. This new extension means there is something for every rider, with the original upper TVT – at 16.7km – providing some fantastic riding for kids, families and the less experienced riders, while this new section is ideal for those looking for more – plus, more experienced riders can, of course, ride the whole thing.
Thredbo Valley Track is open from November to May (subject to weather conditions), and opens up one of Australia’s most iconic national parks to even more visitors, keen to not only try their hand at this new mountain biking track, but also check out the many hiking opportunities there, as well as the fishing and paddling. Plus, with the option of either staying at the NPWS’s Creel Lodge, or camping right near the track at either Ngarigo or Thredbo Diggings campgrounds, it’s a no-brainer to add Kosciuszko National Park to your adventure bucket list.
