A trail to the summit of Mt Elphinstone (1266m., 4153 ft.) was opened in 2010. The main trailhead is located near the entrance to Sprockids Bike Park, which is at the top of the highway Bypass above the Langdale ferry terminal .
(From the ferry, following traffic straight up the divided highway known as the Bypass. At the top of the hill, where traffic turns left to Gibsons, turn right instead. The road promptly ends in a “T” junction. The trailhead is to the right, just before the road gate. Note you can also hike there directly from the ferry via a connector trail at the end of Wharf Road in Langdale.)
FoMEST is an informal (unincorporated) group that’s stewarding the trail. Everyone interested is welcome to join the Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/group
