The Elk View Challenge takes cyclists through one of Pennsylvania’s most remote regions. Leaving tiny Benezette, the route follows a branch of Sinnemahoning Creek downstream for a pleasant warm-up. Face the uphill challenge of renowned Wykoff Run Road, and savor the solitude of the Quehanna Wild Area. Follow the Quehanna Highway through Elk and Moshannon State Forests atop the Allegheny Plateau, before dropping back down to the streambed at Medix Run. At all times, keep your eyes and ears open for the region’s free-roaming elk herd. Seeing and hearing these magnificent creatures will highlight any visit to Pennsylvania’s “wild” country.
