Mount Feathertop and Bon Accord Hill Circuit
Starting near the car park on Feathertop Track, Harrietville, this walk takes you up Mount Feathertop and past Bon Accord Hill via the Bungalow Spur, Razorback and Bon Accord tracks. Not for faint-hearted, this extremely challenging but highly rewarding hike takes you on a relentless circuit within the Alpine National Park. Native wildflowers and many shades of green decorate Mount Feathertop, and the hike to its summit is a gruelling ascent that will test even the fittest walkers. At 1922m, it is the second-highest peak in Victoria and has incredible views over the surrounding mountains. It provides great hiking opportunities in summer, and in winter, it becomes a popular location for extreme skiing. Hikers can stay overnight at the Federation Hut camping area, with toilet facilities and a small water tank. Be aware that weather conditions can change quickly, and there is no access to drinking water on the main Razorback Spur. Make sure you're properly prepared and have the fitness and endurance levels needed to enjoy this walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
