Bullock’s Track via Muzzlewood Flat


1 hr 30 mins

4.5 km Circuit

102 m

Moderate track
This pleasant circuit walk explores some lovely sections of the Thredbo River, as well as some snow gum forests, granite boulder outcrops and a series of frost hollows. Much of the first half of this walk follows the Thredbo River passing some inviting grassy areas where you can sit and enjoy the water or perhaps a spot of fishing. As the track loops back it leads you through the frost hollows of Muzzlewood Flat as you follow a section shared with mountain bikes. The plan is to join this section of the walk to a longer shared trail linking Thredbo Village and the lower Skitube Station.
