Elkford Real Estate Listings and Information
Elkford is a picturesque Rocky Mountain town founded in 1971, as a home for miners working at newly-established Fording Coal operations. From its early days as a collection of temporary homes, a one-room school, and a single general store, Elkford has grown to its current population of nearly 3,000 residents.
Elkford remains a place where nature prevails – and humanity borrows a bit of space. The thrusting & vaulted limestone peaks of the Elk mountain range harbour, wild places that engender profound human emotion. Elkford inspires outdoor pursuits…the palette of both active adventure & passive pursuit of serenity is as big as the mountainous expanse that surrounds it.
Pristine natural wilderness is highlighted by proximity to Elk Lakes Provincial Park, Height of the Rockies Wilderness area along the continental divide, world class fly-fishing on the Elk River, a local ski hill, and a full range of community recreational amenities.
"Wilderness" remains core to what the community is and wants to be. Step back in time for a simplier life. For more information go direct to www.elkford.ca
