    Table of contents

    The Mount Kelly Trail is a beautifully scenic 7.4 km out-and-back hiking route that climbs along the undulating ridges of E.C. Manning Provincial Park to summit Mount Kelly at 1,908 m. From here, hikers will have commanding views of the entire region, enabling them to gaze out over the surrounding mountains and woodland valleys. With a moderate elevation gain and fairly easy to navigate terrain, this hike is a perfect option for experiencing the beauty of the park without the long grind of some other nearby routes.
