Whistler Hare Woods lies on the south bank of Big Shawnee Creek’s tumble and flow on its way to the Wabash River. The banks of the creek are wooded and rise steeply with exposures of sandstone bedrock faces to over 90’ above the creek. The dry acid soils on the bluffs are home to eastern white pine, white oaks, partridge berries and witch hazel.
