McKelvey Trail is an out and back trail from Pintail Road at Childs Lake to Mossberry Lake backcountry campsite (formerly a part of the Mossberry Trails). This trail was recently renamed after former Childs Lake Lodge Owners - Richard and Cathy McKelvey. This trail is mostly frequented by mountain bikers but is designated as a multi-use trail for hikers, bikers and horseback riders.
