Whispering Pines Trail

Park Drive
Ste Genevieve, MO 63670

Length: North Loop - 6 Miles South Loop - 3.75 Miles Time: North Loop - 6 hours South Loop - 3 hours, 45 minutes This trail is generally considered to be one of the best hiking and backpacking trails in the state. It consists of two loops: the north loop is approximately six miles long and the south loop is approximately 3.75 miles. The trail provides the opportunity for day hikes of varying lengths or a longer backpacking trip. It meanders through a beautiful mixed hardwood and pine forest that is home to a variety of animals such as bobcat and wild turkey. Extensive exposures of sandstone and granite can be explored along the banks of Pickle Creek and the River Aux Vases. Mosses and ferns create a luxurious effect on the moist overhangs that occur along the two streams. A hike on Whispering Pine Trail is especially enjoyable in the spring and winter, but a summer day hike ending with a cool dip in Pickle Creek or a backpacking trip on a crisp, fall weekend can be equally rewarding.
