This area is a fantastic area to live in! I love the accessibility to local Canyons, trails, and mountain bike areas. As an avid cyclist, I enjoy climbing the hills in my backyard, whether it be on the road, or on the mountain. The views are absolutely gorgeous, both of the nearby mountains and valley. It is also nice to be out of the winter smog that sets in about January, something we mostly escape here. Neighbors are fantastic, we have a relatively close-knit community up here. In light of the recent fires and water issues of the past, most of those issues have been mostly taken care of, and it was great to see the community rally around each other in this hard stage of people's lives. I also doubt that we will have another fire of the magnitude we have had this last summer.

Everyone here is so kind, accepting, and loving. Your neighbors become family and you feel safe here all the time. It's a city that is always looking to improve, and the city areas are always kept clean and the roads are kept in good shape. There is next to nothing to do here, but the people and environment make up for it. There's nothing better than being able to look out over the entirety of Utah Valley, and then turn around and be right up against the majesty of the Rocky Mountains.
Elk Ridge is a great place raise a family. Its a little bit of a commute to any grocery stores, and freeways, but if you don't mind the drive its super nice. Everyone is super friendly, and I'm glad we chose to live here.
