The Crosscut Saw – 5 Days
The Crosscut Saw is located in the Victorian High Country and is accessible from few locations. It stands out amongst all the other peaks due to its serrated ridge. It is a remote place, but popular with hikers.
Enjoy five days of guided walking through some of the most remote areas of the Alpine National Park. This five day track offers something different every day. There are steep climbs and rock scrambles, incredible views, river crossings, high country huts and much, much more.
This is not an easy track and every day has its challenges, but it is very rewarding in many ways and you need to experience it yourself to appreciate it.
