Benezette is a township located in Elk County in north-central Pennsylvania. As of the 2000 census, the population was 227 residents. It's most well known for being home to Elk State Forest, which is comprised of 200,000 acres. The major portions of the state forest are in Elk and Cameron Counties, with small portions in Clinton, McKean and Potter Counties. The forest was named for the wild elk that were native to Pennsylvania years ago. The last of the wild elk were killed in the late 1800s, but elk from the Rocky Mountains were reintroduced to the area between 1913 and 1926. Today, the herd has over 600 free-roaming animals. Visitors to Elk State Forest will have the most chance of seeing one of the animals during mating season, which occurs in September and October. All visitors are warned to keep a safe distance from the elk, however. Benezette lies along the Elk Scenic Drive, which travels through some of Pennsylvania's most rugged and scenic countryside. Nearby attractions include the Allegheny National Forest, wineries to tour, antique shops, the Clarion River, which is designated a Wild & Scenic waterway, Clear Creek State Park and Cook Forest State Park. Enjoy hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, scenic drives and much more in this delightful area.
