    Dent's Run Elk Viewing Area

    Winslow Hill Road Benezette PA 15821

    (814) 787-5167

    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. Location: From Penfield travel northeast on PA 255 for 6.5 miles to the intersection with PA 555. Veer east (right) onto PA 555 and drive 9.8 miles to the village of Benezette. In Benezette turn north (left) onto Winslow Hill Road and follow it 3.6 miles to the viewing area on the west (left) side of the road.
