Dead Horse Gap walking track

Natural Attractions

Scenic mountain views on Dead Horse Gap walking track will astound you as they sweep over exquisite alpine country. At almost 600 metres above the valley floor, at the top of the Crackenback chairlift, this walking track is the ultimate vantage point for breathtaking vistas, near Thredbo within Kosciuszko National Park.
Follow the signposted track as it winds through a forest of beautiful snow gums. Continue beneath the craggy peaks of Ramshead Range through remarkable scenery, including open herb fields and alpine heath. You may even spot a wombat or kangaroo.
As this last section is very steep, you may prefer to catch the Kosciuszko Express chairlift from Thredbo Village and arrange to be picked up from Dead Horse Gap. Feeling fit? Return to the village along the Thredbo River track.
