Hike the Whispering Pines Loop Reviews

We did not hike the full trail, but used a connector to create about a five mile out and back to the creek. Beautiful woods, rolling hills, varied terrain. We saw some nice, large camping sites off of the connector trail. Definitely looking forward to hiking the full loop soon!
