Hawn State Park: Pickle Creek and Whispering Pines North Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Get warmed up on the rocky and picturesque Pickle Creek before launching into a long loop through majestic pine forests, across high mountain ridges and rocky ledges. You’ll see the e?ects of forest management and see some large pines and hardwoods on the North Loop of Whispering Pines Trail. Begin at the Pickle Creek Trailhead on the northwest side of the parking area. You’ll walk through the picnic area following green blazes. You may see evidence of prescribed burns up on your right and away from the creek. Tree size and health are enhanced if the burns are done correctly to replicate the action of natural fires."
