The Razorback Walk (Alpine National Park)

The Razorback Walk is one of the most iconic walks in Victoria traversing a high alpine ridge to Victoria's second highest but arguably most spectacular peak Mt Feathertop (1922m).

The walk to Mt Feathertop along the Razorback should be treated with respect and walkers should be fit and prepared for the sudden onset of bad weather. In winter only experienced parties should attempt to ski in the area.
