A brand spanking new section of the Thredbo Valley Track has recently opened, extending the mountain biking trail to over 35km long. That’s a lotta pedalling.

The Snowy Mountains is quickly proving itself to be much more than just a winter destination, with an 18.4km extension of the Thredbo Valley Track opening in recent weeks. And mountain bikers everywhere are cheering. 

The track winds through gum forests and grasslands between Bullocks Flat and Gaden Trout Hatchery, and will be accessible from November to May each year. The trail connects the previously existing track that reaches Bullock’s Flat and starts in Thredbo. 

Although the Thredbo Valley Track offers plenty of terrain for all skill levels, the extension of the trail is recommended for experienced riders only, as it includes many technical features as it winds downhill along the river. There are no exits between Bullock’s Flat and the hatchery, so you’ve gotta be self-sufficient and ready for a long ride! 

The entire 35km trail is expected to take between 3 and 8 hours to ride and it’s recommended you organise a pick-up or car shuffle at the end of the track to save you riding all the way back again!
