The course is located on a mountainous zone with giant Trampoline Mushrooms rising over cloudy abysses, where racers have to use some of them as platforms to pass certain gorges. Characters mainly travel the course on land. However, in the middle of the route, they enter a cave where they find an abyss full of Trampoline Mushrooms. Players can drive two different ways over these mushrooms to cross the cave. Some Goombas appear serving as obstacles on the track. If they are hit with a Green Shell or Red Shell, they will drop a Mushroom.
Mushroom Gorge returns in Mario Kart 7 as the third course of the Shell Cup. The difference between the Wii version is that the shortcut next to the start is removed, and in the cavern, if racers take the left, the tallest mushroom is replaced by a blue mushroom which activates their glider. Also, the big corner you can skip by hopping over in Mario Kart Wii, has been replaced as in Mario Kart 7 you can glide over the same amount.
- Players can use a Mushroom at the beginning at the track to bounce on the bouncy mushroom and on to the bridge. It's possible to reach the first bouncy mushroom without boosting with a Mushroom, but you won't make it onto the second mushroom. ✱ for MKWii
- Get a good angle, and then use a Mushroom to hang onto the rock and try to get onto the other side. This one is a hard one to pull off and works best with a Nunchuck. ✱ for MKWii
- At the end of the course, you can jump over the gap to cut off the final turn. This one requires a Mushroom. In Mario Kart 7, you can GLIDE over it. However, this still requires a Mushroom while gliding and if you don't use the Mushroom, you will fall into the gap.
