Snowy Mountains Mountain Biking
Once the snow has melted, the Snowy Mountains becomes a network of superb dirt tracks and sealed roads ideal for mountain biking. Choose from a range of options for beginners and experienced rides on BMX, mountain or road bikes.
Bike hire is available from regional bases including Cooma, Jindabyne and Thredbo. If you're heading on a half day, full day or multi-day mountain biking trip, it's recommended you take a topographic map, first aid kit and compass with you as routes can be challenging.
The Thredbo Valley shared-use track is perfect for beginners. Cycling along the track in spring when Thredbo's vibrant purple wildflowers are in full bloom. Bullocks Walking Trail is another fantastic multi-purpose track shared by bikers and hikers due to its flat, wide terrain.
The Cascade Hut Trail leads to spectacular views. The remote trail carves through dense snow gum and stunning woodland before leading to Bob's Ridge, an incredibly scenic lookout point.
There are several bike trails easily accessible from popular off-road tracks. Along the Khancoban to Kiandra drive and Lobs Hole Ravine 4WD trail you'll encounter several trails for short bike rides through some of the region's most untouched, pristine mountain trails.
From hardcore downhill runs through forests of snow gums to flat, single-lane trails along the Thredbo River, there's no shortage of mountain biking opportunities in the Snowy Mountains.
Enjoy the Snowy Mountains' breathtaking natural scenery on foot and explore the terrain at your own pace. Home to Australia's five highest peaks, and adorned with wildlife and lush flora, enjoy the region's sweeping views.
Experience the spectacular outback scenery of the Snowy Mountains on horseback. The Snowy Mountains' rugged terrain and gentle rolling hills offer ideal conditions for a horseriding adventure with guided rides from one hour up to a full day or multi-day treks.
The Snowy Mountains' various lakes, rivers and water catchments are prime for all classes of anglers, whether you're accustomed to bait, spinning, fly or trolling. Go fishing in the calm waters of Jindabyne or Thredbo, home to a range of trout and atlantic salmon.
