Covered in snow part of the year Alt = 1597 m
This walk leads through an extreme alpine environment and all walkers must be well prepared. During summer, be prepared for both very hot and cold weather, high winds, rain, snow, extreme UV levels and some sections of snow or ice on the ground. Before starting this walk, check advice with Snowy Region Visitor Information Centre (02) 6450 5600, the weather forecast and the snow conditions then change your plans as needed. These notes, grades and walking times have been written for use in the summer months only. Between May and the end of October, this walk is likely to be covered in snow/ice, visitors should be carrying and be prepared to use snowshoes or cross country skis. When there is a chance of significant snow on the ground, visitors will need particularly strong navigation and snowcraft skills - tracks and signage may not be visible. For most visitors, it is best to consider this walk closed during the colder months.

(0 km) Cascades Trail track head to Int of Thredbo River and Dead Horse Gap tracks
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 160 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 6 m Descent = -3 m
From the Cascades Trail track head car park (on the Alpine Way 5.4km west of Friday Drive), this walk crosses the road and turns left following the 'Thredbo Walking Tracks' sign[1] along the track behind the road barrier. The track leads down the wooden steps[2] to soon cross Bogong Creek[3] on a metal bridge[4]. Here the walk heads up a few steps to a signposted intersection[5] with the 'Dead Horse Gap Track'.

Dead Horse Gap Alt = 1543 m
Dead Horse Gap is a relativley low mountain pass in the Great Dividing Range at 1582m AMSL. It was once a meeting place for Aboriginal groups in the summer, where they would perform ceremonies and trade with each other. In nature the pass acts as a funnel for the migration of insects and birds[6]. In the early 20th century, the pass became increasingly popular with stockmen, who brought sheep and cattle to the mountains each summer.[7]

(0.16 km) Int of Thredbo River and Dead Horse Gap tracks to Lower rest area
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 1.72 km Time = 50 mins
Climb = 234 m Descent = -7 m
Turn left: From the intersection, the walk follows the Dead Horse Gap track up the hill. The track climbs the wooden steps and continues up the hill, through the open snowgum forest. As the track approaches the top of the ridge (where the ground is much rockier), it arrives at a backless wooden bench beside some boulders.

(1.88 km) Lower rest area to Upper rest area
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 1.31 km Time = 37 mins
Climb = 171 m Descent = -4 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, the walk follows the bush track up the hill. The track climbs through the snowgum forest and up the rocky hill, crossing a few wooden boardwalks and some metal walkways, until it reaches the second wooden bench.

Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.67 km Time = 36 mins
Climb = 74 m Descent = -54 m
Continue straight: From the second wooden bench, the walk follows the bush track up the hill towards the top of the ridge. The track emerges above the treeline and winds up past a long line of snow poles. The track then winds to the right, along the ridgeline until it reaches the information sign titled "above the tree line".
Continue straight: From the information sign, the walk follows the bush track along the ridgeline to the east. The track passes several rock outcrops and climbs up to the top of the ridge, from where you can see the chair lift. The track then winds down the hill to the top of the Basin Tbar.

Eagles Nest Restaurant Alt = 1928 m
This is Australia's highest restaurant, providing great food and outstanding views. It is easily accessible, nestled on the mountain directly opposite the top of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift, and is open year-round. For more information, call (02) 64576019.

(5.32 km) Top of Kosciuszko Express chairlift to Bottom of Kosciuszko Express chairlift
Path: Easy - Wheelchair accessible - transport
Length = 1.86 km Time = 20 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -558 m
Turn left: From the top terminal, walk up to the platform as directed by the chairlift operator and sit down in the seat, letting it scoop you up. Once seated, pull down the safety bar and enjoy the ride down to Thredbo village. :) After alighting at the bottom, this walk turns right to almost immediately turn left down a set of steps and heads through the building to find an open area at the front of the 'Valley Terminal' building where there are some large maps.
Note: The distance and altitude change for this ride is not included in the total for this walk.

Kosciuszko Express Chairlift Alt = 1372 m
This is one of the few lifts operating in the summer months at Thredbo, and is made quite popular by thousands of people walking to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko each year. Lift tickets can be purchased from the store at the bottom of the chairlift. Lift tickets are $31 return ($25 one way) per person[12]. This lift is generally closed during November and May for maintenance each year, but the the Snowgum chair can be used at this time instead, this will add extra walking time to you walk[13].

Here the walk turns right onto Friday drive and follows the footpath under the footbridge[17] heading between the road and the river. The walk follows the road past the children's playground[18] (on your left) and beside the car park[19], past the pond[20] to come to a four-way intersection with 'Diggings Terrace'[21], just past a small pond.
Turn right: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Crackenback Drive' sign[22] across the bridge[23], over Thredbo River[24]. The walk then comes to a signposted intersection in front of the 'Thredbo Memorial Community Centre'[25].

(7.66 km) Thredbo Memorial Community Centre to Int of Riverside Walk and Thredbo River bridge
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 204 m Time = 4 mins

The track leads alongside the river[28][29] for approximately 100m before bending up and leaving the bush to come to the edge of the Golf Course[30], behind the community centre[31].
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the well worn track winding around the edge of the golf course[32], away from the community centre. After about 30m this walk crosses a short metal bridge[33], to then come to an intersection at a larger timber bridge[34] (on your left).

(7.87 km) Int of Riverside Walk and Thredbo River bridge to Int of Thredbo River and Golf Course Walk tracks
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 807 m Time = 15 mins
Climb = 30 m Descent = -1 m
Continue straight: From the wooden bridge[35], this walk follows the track whilst keeping the river to your left[36]. The track gently meanders between the golf course and the river, enjoying some sections very close to the river[37]. The track heads over a few metal grates[38] and over a small metal bridge[39] to come to an intersection next to the golf course marked with a small timber bridge[40] (over a small creek), just before the pump house[41].
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the clear track towards the green timber hut[42], keeping the Thredbo river to your left. The track soon passes the pump house[43] (the green timber hut) and leads beside the river[44] for about 150m before turning right and heading uphill[45]. The walk then heads up the steps[46] to find a clear three-way intersection marked with a large 'Thredbo River Track' sign[47].

(8.68 km) Int of Thredbo River and golf course tracks to Cascades lookout
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 1.3 km Time = 27 mins
Climb = 69 m Descent = -12 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Thredbo River Track' sign through the bush and across a metal walkway, continuing along the bush track as it winds alongside the river. The walk crosses several metal walkways and winds up a few sets of wooden steps before coming to the intersection of the Thredbo River Cascades lookout platform.

Cascades Lookout Alt = 1463 m
This metal platform leans over the Thredbo River, lookout upstream to the flowing cascades. There is also a wooden seat provided here, making it a great rest stop, conveniently situated about half way between Dead Horse Gap and Thredbo Village, on the Thredbo River track.

(9.97 km) Cascades lookout to Int of Thredbo River track at eastern bridge
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 467 m Time = 9 mins
Climb = 21 m Descent = -8 m
Continue straight: From the lookout, this walk follows the wooden steps up the rocky winding hill to the top, where it flattens out at a wooden boardwalk and continues along a metal walkway, winding up through the bush until coming to a metal bridge crossing the Thredbo River.

(10.44 km) Thredbo River eastern bridge to Thredbo River western bridge
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 340 m Time = 7 mins
Climb = 15 m Descent = -6 m
Continue straight: From just before the bridge[48], this walk crosses Thredbo River[49] using the long metal bridge. This walk then leads up a log lined set of stairs[50] to then turn right and follow a track through the open grassy area with a scattering of snow gums[51]. Before too long the track comes closer to the river again and heads along a metal grate[52] to then cross the Thredbo River again on another metal bridge[53].

(10.78 km) Thredbo River track western bridge to Cascades Trail track head
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 1.23 km Time = 26 mins
Climb = 71 m Descent = -14 m
Continue straight: From the western bridge[54] this walk follows the track across the grassy area[55] to soon lead up a long series of steps[56]. The track then gently undulates along the side of the valley, keeping the valley to your left. Over the next 600m the track crosses a series of metal erosion grates[57] (and some small creeks) and passes through a section of dead snow gums[58]. The track gently climbs then flattens out to be a similar height[59] to the road (on the other side of the valley) and then comes to a signposted three-way intersection[60] where there is a 'Thredbo village 4km' sign[61] pointing back along the track.
Turn left: From the intersection, this walk follow the clear track away from the other two sign posted tracks to soon cross Bogong Creek[62] on a metal bridge[63]. The track then leads left and heads up a series of steps to follow behind the road barrier, soon coming to a 'Thredbo Walking Tracks' sign[64] beside the road. Here the walk crosses the road to find the Cascades Trail track head car park (on the Alpine Way 5.4km west of Friday Drive).

Jude - Alternative walk instead of Ch IP:144.136.116.xxx | 2010-03-05 10:27:26
Did this walk yesterday, March 2010, although we started at the golf course. If feeling energetic (or worried about heights ie chairlift) take the Merritts Nature Track (4km/2-3 hours one way) instead of the chairlift. Walk through alpine, sub-alpine, wet heath and montane plant communities. It is an interesting and varied walk but it is steep in places with many steps.
Starts beside the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift and ends at the Valley Terminal.
