Situated at “the end of the road,” the District of Elkford is a picturesque Rocky Mountain town founded in 1971 as a home for miners working at Fording Coal Operations. Pristine wilderness is highlighted by proximity to Elk Lakes Provincial Park, Koko Claims snowmobiling area, world class fly-fishing on the Elk River, over 100 kilometres of trails leading to the vaulted limestone peaks of the Rocky Mountains and a full range of community recreational amenities usually only found in much larger cities.
