Dent's Run Elk Viewing Area

Winslow Hill Road
Benezette, PA 15821
Region: Pennsylvania Wilds

The Dent's Run Elk Viewing Area is the most popular site for elk viewing in the state. Many people come in September and October to hear the bulls bugle and watch them compete for dominance. Each fall, the PA Game Commission conducts presentations on elk natural history in the covered amphitheater. A handicap-accessible walkway leads to an overlook where interpretive displays teach visitors about PA's elk herd. To keep this area a popular vantage point for elk, the PA Game Commission plants crops of winter wheat, oats, grasses, and clovers in the fields every spring and fall.
