This strenuious 4 day – 46km hike takes you to one of the most remarkable mountain peaks in South-West Tasmania, Frenchmans Cap. Located in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, Frenchmans Cap sits high above its surrounds at 1446m. With cabins situated evenly throughout the trail, Frenchmans Cap is a remarkable and accessible remote multi-day hike.

The weather at Frenchmans Cap is highly unpredictable; the trail will be wet, muddy and demandingly steep at times. However, with great exertion comes equal reward as the views are astonishing and the intimate geography awe inspiring. The hike can be completed in 3 days, though 4 days is recommended to allow greater chance of clear weather at the summit.
