Whispering Pines City Park is a huge park located just outside of the downtown Inverness area. Large trails, sports complex, playground & swimming pool there's something for everyone here. Large wooded area with lots to do.

Nice quiet trail located right in Inverness. We chose the 2.4 mile yellow trail. The route winds through Whispering Pines Park, which has something for everyone, including a pool, basketball and tennis courts, baseball diamonds and even a Frisbee golf course.
Be vigilant for trail markings; most of the yellow blazes are painted on roots in the middle of the trail. Other trails intersect with the yellow trail, often with no signage to keep you on track. We didn’t get lost, though, so I still gave it 5 stars.

Although 1/2 of the trail is along side major roads I really enjoyed this trail. Lots of signs of Golfer Tortoises. I also saw lots of birds and butterflies. Most of the trail is in the shade.
