Elk City is in the heart of Idaho County most and home to some of its most beautiful forests. Surrounded by the Nez Perce National Forest and near the Gospel Hump Wilderness area, this quaint town is the perfect location for getting in touch with nature. Historically, Elk City, Idaho was once the site of a gold strike. In 1891 an old west mining town sprung up almost overnight. However, by the 1930s the gold fever dwindled out and today the Elk City meadow is more of a recreational sanctuary. The area is populated with big game and wildlife, and residents can enjoy the beauty of both the American and Red Rivers. Recreational opportunities in the area include exploring the old mining towns, picking huckleberries, hunting, fishing, atving or snowmobiling along the 350 miles of groomed trails.
