Park Description:

The fact that there are no marked trails in the 1,930-acre Whittingham WMA should not deter anyone from enjoying a visit.  The mowed paths along the edges and through the centers of former farm fields beckon hikers who savor a pastoral setting.  Hedgerows and small stands of hardwoods separate the fields.  Woods roads cut through adjacent forests.
