Located in the heart of the Nez Perce National Forest; Elk City lies 50 miles east of Grangeville, Idaho in Idaho County. If you combine the other small communities within a 40 mile radius you might scourge up 400 full time residents. This area has many attractions but without any bright lights. Old mining communities that boomed starting in 1860's provide interesting history. Finding the remains of an old mining camp is a thrill and you'll be amazed that someone actually lived in some of these far out areas. Trout fishing in the rivers and high mountain lakes are to be enjoyed by the fisherman that likes to travel to the backcountry. Some great hunting for elk, cougar, bear and white tail deer is to be found in this area
