Access to starting point:

The starting point is Thredbo, New South Wales in Australia. Park in the designated areas if arriving by car. Thredbo is situated in the Kosciuszko national park, therefore park entrance fees apply.

In the summertime, no public transport is available. Last town with public transport in Jindabyne 35 km from Thredbo. The only option is to take a school-bus (once a day at around 16:00, mind weekends and school holidays).

Path description:

The Merritts Track begins in Thredbo just next to the Valley Terminal (to the right of the Kosciuszko express building), circles tennis courts, shortly after a bobsled and then a small footbridge over Merritts creek. Upon reaching the ski runs (Bunny Walk and Village Trail) carefully follow the Merritts Track signs. The Track joins the ski run again, but forks to the right soon after. Follow a marked footpath to the Picnic Lookout site. From here continue through a snow gum forest by ascending several flights of stairs. Carefully cross a mountain bike track and immediately follow the track again into the forest and over several steps. Later, cross the ski run and follow the track to the Lower and a few minutes later to the Upper Bench Seat. Afterward, pass the Black Sallees Mountain Bar & Bistro where the Track reaches the forest line, turn left and immediately right to the highest Track. Follow it for 20 meters and turn right to the Merritts Track. Follow the Track to the Eagles Nest or the Top of Kosciuszko Express chairlift.

On the way: Black Sallees Mountain Bar & Bistro (1840m)
Trip can be prolonged to next destinations: Lake Cootapatamba, Mount Kosciuszko
