Time: 6 hr return
Type: Walking Track
This track starts at Kellys Creek Shelter beside SH 73, three km north of Otira Village. It is a steep climb through rata/kamahi forest and subalpine scrub. This leads onto the tussock grasslands which surround the hut on the Kelly Range. On fine days there are good views from the saddle behind the hut looking down the Taramakau River to the West Coast.
Be safe and beware - this is mountain country
