Thredbo Mountain Bike Park is one of Australia’s premier mountain biking destinations and this summer it takes gravity riding, cross country exploring and MTB action to a whole new level and elevation. With new trails in the pipeline and revamped existing tracks, there are over 25 kilometres of epic riding to enjoy. From downhill, cross country, all-mountain and a fast flowing pump track there is lots to love about riding in the Thredbo Mountain Bike Park this summer.
Here is a list of trails with descriptions, lengths & skill level for all riders.
Gravity Trails :
THREDBO ALL-MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Starting at 1930m above sea level, riders are taken over 10km down through the impressive mountain landscape with uninterrupted views of the Thredbo Valley. Although not as steep as the Flow Trail, it offers intermediate and advanced riders plenty of variety and line choice. Once at the Creek Station, riders can climb back to the Kosciuszko Express, take the easy cruise via Friday Drive or continue along the Thredbo Valley Track.
KOSCIUSZKO FLOW TRAIL
Perfect for those looking for an introduction into downhill riding or a warm up for the Cannonball. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift, riders roll through single-track with never ending rollers and smooth berms to keep the flow going, it is a blast top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a more mellow ride, but still providing the adrenalin rush of downhilling.
CANNONBALL DOWNHILL TRAIL
Thredbo’s signature trail, descending 600m vertically through the tree-lined Supertrail slopes. Cannonball tests riders with off-camber roots, rock drops, jumps, wall-ride and other technical features that the gravity specialists dream about. Recent upgrades include more fall-line added along with some big jumps in the mix for the freeriders. *Full-face helmet compulsory.
Winding its way through awesome terrain on each side of the High Noon steeps, this trail flaunts effortless flowing berms and cruisy traverses. The more advanced will spot the odd gap or two making it loads of fun for all. Ricochet is accessible from Easy Street via the Gunbarrel Chairlift or the Upper Thredbo All Mountain Trail. The trail offers a progression into more advanced flow gravity riding.
Woody’s is a short off-shoot from the lower Kosciuszko Flow Trail. Winding its way through dense bush it features hand built techy terrain with a few machine built berms thrown in. This is the perfect introduction into technical single-track riding with plenty of variation and obstacles to navigate.
Home Run gives riders a direct route back to the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift from Ricochet & the All-Mountain Trail. From Creek Station, head across the river on the summer road, up a small pinch climb to the top of the bobsled before veering right to descend onto a fun flowing section with deep back to back berms bringing you into the Valley Terminal area before loading the chairlift for your next lap.
Easy street gives riders green run access to the Flow Trail. Starting at the top of the Gunbarrel Express Chairlift, it follows the winter ‘Catwalk’ and is a great starting point for those new to the mountain bike park. Featuring easy traverses, small rollers and a steady gradient, it will get you warmed up before tackling the intermediate trails.
THREDBO VALLEY TRACK
Distance: 5-35 km
Highlights: Unrivalled river views • Easy going • Picturesque rest areas
This impressive shared use trail takes riders down the picturesque Thredbo Valley and includes some amazing suspension bridges. Meandering along the banks of the famous Thredbo River, riders can maintain flow undulating through open grasslands and thick eucalyptus forests. The section to the third bridge (5km return) or Rangers Station (12km return) is perfect for the beginners with some climbing involved on the return trip. Continuing downriver there are forests and open woodlands with smooth descents and short uphill bursts with rollers to keep the flow going. Riders can continue on to Thredbo Diggings (14.5km one way) or head onto to Lake Crackenback Resort (20km one way).

This trail is also accessed by the Friday Flat Loop and Thredbo All-Mountain Trail.

BRIDLE TRAIL LOOP
Distance: 1.9 km
The Bridle Loop is a short and sharp technical loop accessed by the start of the Thredbo Valley Track (TVT).
