heading to thredbo for the first time ever this christmas and just wondering what sort of XC tracks there are on the mountain itself. I've obviously had a look at the trail map and it seems the only ones rideable on an XC bike (100mm front and back) would be the new Kosciuszko Flow Trail and possibly the Merrits Traverse (and that one says guided tours only).
i don't mind the occasional hike a bike section but if it gets any harder than say the 'bunnings' trail here in sydney then i know it's not for me.
Bungarra Alpine Centre has a new trail network with approx 20km singletrack, skills area, pump track, jumps line, pocket park- just 5km from Jindabyne. Visit www.bungarra.com.au for more info on how to ride on the trails at Bungarra. Accommodation is available for small groups or large groups up to 200people.
I'm heading to the Snowy Mountains this summer with the #1 goal of spending a few days on the Thredbo Downhill. I've watched countless youtube vids but its always hard to tell the severity of the terrain.
1. Comparison - Can anyone provide a comparison of Thredbo vs Manly Dam (Allambie Fire Trail and Water Lab). Steepness of trail, size of the steps/drops, radical changes in speed needed to survive etc?
2. Bike - On the first day I will hire gear, but from then on I plan on riding my Giant Reign 1 .... thoughts?
Hello - does anybody know any good mountain bike trails in and around Braidwood?
Any suggestions for easy/medium level family rides around the Jindabyne/Snowy Mountains area?
We are heading to the Snowies after the Mont, staying at Jindabyne and have 5 days in the local area. Appreciate any suggestions for local trails (both single track and gravel) suitable for our three boys (10, 12, 13) and S.O. Thank you.
Someone asked about this on the ride today (riding in Jindy that is).
Here's some pics:
Here's a GPS:
Interestingly I read that they have recently secured funding for some new trails in the area, see:
I was cruising google earth the other day, and saw this series of trails up in the snowys, and i started to wonder...
It looks like a fairly do-able loop, i remember reading somewhere about the possibility of riding it as a 2-3 day spring ride. With either a car shuffle or a long bit of road bash.
Anyone familiar with it? Done it? other options in the vicinity?
(it starts at Dead horse gap)

We are a bunch of guys planning on hitting the fire trails from Thredbo to Tathra and need a little advice on the route. We'll start with 'the pinch' ride down to the snowy but we then need to head east and get to Delegate. There seems to be two tracks over the mountains, the 'snowy creek fire trail' and the 'snowy track'. Has anyone any comments or ideas of the route? Also if this thread is in the right forum?
I am heading down to Thredbo to do some Cannonball shenanigans this coming Anzac long weekend.
Just wondering if anyone else had any plans to head down and wanted to get together for some runs down the mountain.
I will be riding Sunday 25th and Maybe the afternoon of Saturday 24th.
I will be in Talingbo at the northern end of Kosciuszko national park next week ( about 1/2 an hour south of Tumut). Can any body recommand good XC trails in the area? I am planning to bring my bike. Many thanks- Chris
