The Crosscut Saw is located in the Victorian High Country and stands out amongst all the other peaks due to its serrated ridge.

This five day hiking tour will take you through some very remote locations with breathtaking views. This hike is challenging, at times demanding with steep climbs, rock scrambles and river crossings, but it’s very rewarding in more ways than you can imagine. It’s about testing yourself physically and mentally. Every day is different and comes with new challenges. The experience you will take away from this hike will stay with you forever.
