I have just bought a new bike, so there is now no excuse for me to not utilise one of the best tracks we have here in the Snowy Mountains, the TVT ( Thredbo Valley Track ) See Map Details here
The TVT is open from November through to May conditions permitting and is well worth an adventure, you can deicde how far you want to go and who you want to take along for the ride! There are many local shuttle services so you only have to go one way if you wnat to and pack a picnic for the many scenic spots you may find. The TVT has been a great success since opening and it is great to have the NPWS investing in track improvements and upgrades on a regular basis.
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).
The newly opened lower Thredbo Valley Track extension for the more experienced rider adds 15km to the trail from Lake Crackenback to Gaden Trout Hatchery. This section features stepper sections of trail both climbing & descending and some more technical rock sections to navigate. Riders can also extend further by joining the Hatchery Bay trail which continues onto Jindabyne
Other track networks are open including the Hatchery Bay and Mills Creek/Tyrolean Village track on Lake Jindabyne. Check out the Trailforks map here.
