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.
