Elk State Forest offers many opportunities for sightseeing, scenic drives (featuring a large portion of the Elk Scenic Drive), wildlife watching, and panoramic views from several vistas. Depending on the season, a scenic drive along a state forest road could reveal not only the fall coloration, but also an awe-inspiring view of a fresh snowfall, spring blossoms of the Juneberry and dogwoods, followed by mountain laurel and rhododendron flowers, and a summer’s view of young wildlife. An alert visitor may view elk. A popular elk viewing destination in the state forest is the state of the art Elk Country Visitor Center.
