Whispering Pines Nature Trail is a 0.7 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Tyler, Texas that features a waterfall. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
Short and peaceful hiking trail with a few nature trivia posters along the way.
I would rate this trail as Moderate difficulty because I like to start the loop clockwise at the group camping trailhead at the bottom of this trail instead of starting at the high point near park headquarters. You will climb 115 feet doing it this way going up step after step. Interpretive signs along the way to point out various trees and other features created by the CCC. The "downhill" side of the loop goes by a wading pool, a really nice waterfall and crosses the creek a few times. A great workout and great practice for hiking harder trails in other areas such as Enchanted Rock or even Big Bend.
Trail is a nice and quick loop from the top of the state park to the bottom. Signs indicate areas of interest regarding CCC history.
