Located within the 1280.7 acre Lake Whitney State Park are 2 trails of approximately 1 mile each - one for hikers only and one multi-use trail for hikers and bicyclists. Birding is said to be excellent within the park and as such these trails will introduce nature enthusiasts to the local flora and fauna.

The park is located in the Grand Prairie sub region of the Black land Prairie natural region. It has open disturbed tallgrass prairie remnants with scattered groves of live oak and a small area of post oak/blackjack oak woodland. In the spring, bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes, and over 40 species of wildflowers cover the roadside and landscape. Common animals include white-tailed deer, raccoons, and squirrels with fox, coyote, and bobcat occasionally being spotted. 194 species of birds have been spotted, including wild turkeys and bald eagles.

Directions: From Hillsboro, TX, Take State Highway 22 west to Whitney; then follow the signs to Lake Whitney State Park. The park is located 3 miles west of Whitney on FM 1244 on the shore of Lake Whitney.
