Mushroom Gorge as it appears in Mario Kart Wii.
|Series||Mario Kart series|
|First game||Mario Kart Wii|
Mushroom Gorge (Known as Kinoko Canyon in Japan) is a course in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7. It is the third course in the Mushroom Cup and thus the third track in the entire game. It takes place in a mountainous region and, as the name implies, features plenty of towering mushrooms. In one portion of the race, racers will be allowed to bounce on them.
The first portion of the track makes players curve around a winding course without any guard rails. Large mushrooms can be seen beside the track. After you head over the bridge the player will go on a boost pad and then bounce across a single Mushroom. Or, the player can take a left turn, which is about the same distance. After a series of bouncy mushrooms the player will go through a cave in the mountain which features crystals and the largest set of bouncy mushrooms in the entire course. Near the finish line, there is a curve with Goombas walking side to side.

- The Bouncy Mushrooms may be inspired by similar mushrooms featured in World 1-3 of New Super Mario Bros.
- While bouncing on the mushrooms, players are capable of pushing others off of the edge in midair. The heavier the player, the harder they'll push. Light players are prone to this and must be careful.
- When this level was featured in an online Mario Kart Tournament, backwards, an extra mushroom was put in near the finish line, that provided a three second shortcut.
