Region: Pennsylvania Wilds
Located in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds, Benezette has endless outdoor recreation opportunities including hiking, biking, and camping. Benezette is perhaps known for being the best location to catch a glimpse of Pennsylvania’s elk herd, the largest free-roaming elk herd east of the Mississippi River. Stop by the state-of-the-art Elk Country Visitor Center on Winslow Hill to learn more about the elk herd through interactive displays, guided trail tours, and a multi-sensory 4-D theater. Benezette also sits along the Elk Scenic Drive, a 127-mile excursion through some of the PA Wilds’ most rugged and beautiful country with many stops along the way for wildlife viewing. For a more relaxing visit, tour the village’s charming shops, bed and breakfasts, and historic offerings.
