Golf Course Loop


Thredbo is one of the premier mountain biking destination in Australia. The summer mecca of mountain enthusiasts is a village located on Snowy Mountain in new South Wales. Thredbo has had its influence in the country’s mountain bike folklore for over two decades. It is an essential part of countless biking lovers’ lives. There are more than 30 miles of amazing riding to enjoy, including downhill, flow, all-mountain, cross-country and various skill parks for all levels.

Gold Course Loop is one of the nice cross-country trails in the network and is the most “playful” among them.

The charming trail is on the lower west side of the system, circling the golf course and area around it. It flows through snow gum trees and if you are lucky, you can spot some wildlife.

Some technical stretches make the 1.4-mile Loop an intermediate ride.


A mostly downhill singletrack. There are some small steps, technical climbs, and rock gardens.
