In addition to our variety of amenities, Elk River Club offers many fun activities for members and their families.
The Riverside Park at Elk River includes an acre and a half of fun, including fenced a small dog area, a large dog area and children's playground. The path around the park leads to a gazebo and a large deck overlooking the Elk River, perfect for relaxing or fishing.
Hiking, biking and riding trails intertwine throughout the Elk River Community. The most recently constructed Town Trail takes hikers from Elk River's Riverside Park along the Elk River, over creeks, past the May Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and into Banner Elk for a beautiful walk for all nature lovers.
