Whispering Pines is located approximately ten miles north of the town of Payson, Arizona in Northern Gila County. Situated on what was a ranch during the early part of the last century, the area is part of the Tonto National Forest, thick with tall Ponderosa pine trees. The neighborhood contains a mix of year-round residences and summer homes.
To the north of the community is the Mogollon Rim, a 7000 foot high ridge that runs for 200 miles across the north-central part of the state. A short drive from Whispering Pines brings one to the foot of this escarpment, through some of the state’s most beautiful country. The East Verde River meanders along through much of the community, offering countless picturesque vistas and out-of-the-way places to lean back and enjoy the cool, clear air.
