  Uses Walking

Mt Richmond (1760 m) is the namesake of the forest park that encompasses it. It is the second-highest peak in the park, though its prominence gives it arguably the best views of any point on the Richmond Range. Richmond Saddle Hut is handily positioned a short distance from the summit, allowing overnight trips from Top Valley, or multi-day trips in combination with nearby Mt Fell Hut, or Pelorus Track.
